Whether you care about climate change, bullying, homelessness, animal cruelty, gay rights, all of the above, or another important issue, YEA Camp will help you make an even bigger difference on a cause you care about.

We have campers from all over the country (and sometimes even other countries!) attend our unique camp, and space is very limited and first come-first served. In 2016, YEA Camp sessions will be held in Massachusetts, New York, and California.

IShro4nwbq2y550000000000 (1)YEA Camp Animal Advocates’ Session – High Falls, New York
July 17-24, 2016
When Woodstock Farm Sanctuary, a sanctuary for animals rescued from cruelty, purchased a new property that is actually a summer camp, we knew we had to hold YEA Camp there! This beautiful new camp location in High Falls, NY, is gorgeous and less than 2 hours from Manhattan!

At this special session of YEA Camp, our activities will be devoted to supporting campers whose issue of importance is helping animals. And what better place for us to do it than at an animal sanctuary?! Campers stay in comfortable dorm-style cabins with campers and staff and  will have the opportunity to spend free time each day visiting with the animals.

YEA Camp California will be held at the beautiful Venture Retreat Center in Pescadero, roughly an hour from San Francisco.

We are lucky to be at this gorgeous location so close to the city.  Space is very limited at this location.

Financial Aid

Unlike most specialty camps, YEA Camp offers financial aid for low-income youth who have not attended YEA Camp before and would not otherwise be able to afford to attend. If your family would need financial aid to attend, review our financial aid protocol and then have the camper register at the “Register” page, at which point you will be directed to the Financial Aid application.

YEA Camp is a nonprofit organization committed to social justice and diversity in our programs. We do not turn eager campers away due to lack of funds. We rely on an honor code to ensure that each family pays what they can and that funding is available for those who need it. We rely on tax-deductible donations to our scholarship program to continue this policy.

Thanks so much for your interest in YEA Camp! We hope to see you this summer!
