To name our camp, we tipped our hats to the past and chose a word from the local Native Americans, but wanted to look to the future at the same time. After much debate we chose the name MOWKAWOGAN—the Abenaki word meaning community. Our camp introduces campers to traditional summer camp activities, and helps to prepare our youth as they discover, learn and grow becoming active members in today’s community.
Day camp like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. But few environments are as special as summer camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities. Every new experience comes with a chance to learn and grow.
At the Y, we strive to give every child and teen opportunities to test their own limits and explore their potential.
New! For youth who have completed 9th or 10th grade.
The Leader in Training program introduces teens to the skills needed to become leaders. This 5 week program fosters the YMCA leadership philosophy, effective communication, team building, first aid/CPR skills, life guarding skills, behavior management techniques, building relationships, and a foundation for pre- employment skills.

For kids who have completed Kindergarten.
NEW THIS YEAR! This special camp, created just for children who have just completed kindergarten, will be held at the Child Development Center right next door to the Concord Family YMCA. This will allow us to use the facilities for swimming daily at the Y’s pool as well as rock wall climbing. Campers will also get to go on field trips for hiking and exploring at state parks. Each week will feature an exciting theme, culminating in a special event on Fridays.
