Family Programs


Why Family Programs:

Spending time together as a family has immediate rewards but the long-term gains are even more significant.  Not only will you build a solid foundation for memories that will last a lifetime, but you'll also be helping to build and develop a set of skills and patterns that your children will carry with them into adolescence and adulthood.

What You Can Expect at a Hazen Family Program

A Variety of Activities

There are plenty of opportunities for low and high energy activities for adults and children, beginner or advanced.  The excitement doesn't stop when the sun goes down as every night is filled with fun activities for the whole family to enjoy together. Highlights of our weekend programming include: canoeing and kayaking, the archery range, our Climbing Wall and/or the Alpine tower, Giant Swing, candle making, woodburning, and more! In addition our sports courts and hiking trails are available for families to make their own adventures.


For both parent-child weekends, we will have families stay in shared accomodation. We have two winterized lodgess that have multiple wings (which typically sleeps between 10-12 per wing) and our Alpine Cabins (which can fit up to 6 people) which have a space heater for colder weather. All accomodation includes a full bathroom with shower. If needed, we will open up Cabins 8-12 as well. These are seasonal ( they have their own bathroom/shower inside like the other cabins but are not heated). Housing is assigned as registrations come in.

Home Cooked Meals:

Camp Hazen YMCA's Food Service Staff pride themselves on serving food of high quality and variety.  Meals are designed to please all members of the family and we are happy to cater to special dietary needs.  In the spirit of fun, our menus will reflect the Family Program's theme.

Quality Staff

Our experienced staff are selected from the "cream of the crop" of our summer camp.  They are chosen for their ability to relate to a variety of age groups, their enthusiasm and their spirit.  Staff members and campers work directly with our YMCA Professional Staff to ensure a quality program and a mission driven experience.
