FENTON — There’s more to YMCA Camp Copneconic than just summer camps.
Nestled among 700 acres of wooded lakefront property in Fenton, the facility operates year-round hosting school and scout groups, church retreats, conferences and trainings, holiday parties and teambuilding events — in addition to its popular lineup of summer day and overnight camps.
School programs include day and overnight options, which can be customized to complement existing classroom curriculum. Camp Copneconic staff members are committed to helping teachers educate their students through building an appreciation for the natural world and strengthening group interaction skills.
Scouts, church groups and other non-profit organizations will also find exciting, educational and adventurous activities through a Camp Copneconic experience.
On-site food service is also available, making event planning even easier.
Beyond the modern ranch-style lodges and rustic cabins, Camp Copneconic offers a long list of unique outdoor experiences that can be incorporated into a customized group adventure. Activities may include the high ropes course, zip line, rock climbing wall and waterfront activities on 125-acre Lake Copneconic.
To learn more and sample some of the programs and activities available at YMCA Camp Copneconic, the public is invited to attend a free Community Open House on March 10 from 2 to 5 p.m. Camp staff will be on hand to provide tours, answer questions and offer scheduling assistance to those interested school programs and group adventures. Parents can also register their children for summer day and overnight camps during the event at the lowest prices of the season.
