Family Weekends at Hazen

 

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.

Lodging:

For both parent-child weekends, we will have families stay in their own accomodation. They will each have a private wing of a lodge (which typically sleeps between 10-12) or their very own Alpine Cabin. All accomodation includes a full bathroom with shower. Should you decide to attend with someone in your "bubble" such as family members or close friends/neighbors, you can share accomdations. In order to provide each family with their own living space, we have opened additional cabins to what we normally use for this annual program. You have already been assigned housing. Your room/cabin for the weekend: 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.

COVID Considerations:

  • Health screening at check in.  Simple questions regarding symptoms. If you're sick, stay home! We ask that all attendees are either Fully Vacinated or have a negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours prior arrival at camp. Although these steps are not required, they will help make the weekend a safer program!
  • While masks or face coverings are also not required, they are suggested to all participants over the age of two any time you are indoors (excluding your own cabin/wing). For example: going on a hike with your family – masks off. Candlemaking – masks on.
  • Hand washing – We have added four outdoor hand washing stations spread out across camp and make is very convenient to stay clean! We encourage everyone to wash their hands between activities, before and after meals and any other time you pass a hand washing station!
  • Cleaning - Common spaces such as the Dining Hall and shower houses will be cleaned and disinfected multiple times throughout each day.
