About Us

YMCA Camp Mason is a place where children can enjoy being active and play in an outdoor paradise. Our 460-acre site offers incredible opportunities for outdoor activities. It’s a place where kids can be kids! 

Through our Summer Camp and Outdoor Center programs, people of all ages switch off from the pressures of day to day and enjoy meaningful time together in nature. For over 124 years, Camp Mason has been changing lives, and we have no intention of stopping anytime soon!

We believe that every child deserves a camp experience and we fundraise each year to make that dream a reality. We are a community that values friendship and acceptance, and encourages each member to do their best. It’s a camp that’s big enough to offer a wide range of programs, yet small enough to ensure that every camper receives individual attention and is valued as a person. 

Our campers and families consistently tell us that our beautiful facility and spectacular location are some of the reasons they return to camp year after year. We are located amidst forest and streams and adjacent to the 70,000-acre Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. Our facility offers comfortable lodging, wholesome meals and a wide range of activities for all ages. 

Our Mission

Camp Mason sets campers up to experience growth, relationship building and fun! And that’s important, as we carry out our mission:

Through the transforming experience of outdoor camping – rich in bonding friendships, physical activity, and fun – YMCA Camp Mason will lead youth, families, and community to an awareness of our core traditions of environmental stewardship, spirituality, and respect for our fellow man.
