“This experience was great for our students.  The quality of the Camp Mason staff, their program and the facilities made for an enjoyable experience for the school faculty as well.” –  Moorestown Friends School


The Outdoor Center at YMCA Camp Mason is uniquely positioned to provide students with a rich experience-based learning environment with many of our programs meeting Common Core State Standards as well as Next Generation Science Standards. We specialize in creating custom designed programs to meet the needs of your school. From an Environmental Education science program, to adventure based leadership experience, or a mix of both, we have a program to suit you. We can ensure that your program meets your objectives and that the students are provided with a fun and educational experience that they will remember for years to come.    photo 66

Our fully trained professional Camp Mason staff will guide your students through the many activities Camp Mason has to offer. Check out our program options to learn more about some of the programs that are available.  We serve thousands of students annually, and would be happy to provide a reference from a school in your area regarding their Camp Mason experience.

There is a large body of solid evidence pointing to the fact that an outdoor education experience increases students desire to learn, their ability to communicate effectively, and their commitment to engage in responsible decision making.
