Swimming, basketball, archery, ropes course, arts & crafts, soccer, volleyball, hiking, outdoor cooking, boating, canoeing and fishing are just some of the activities young campers experience at Camp Jericho. The 125th Anniversary Campaign will support an expansion of the waterfront, which will increase water activities and improve the overall camp experience at Jericho. • Bright Beginnings: Even brighter days are in store for the children attending the YMCA’s Child Care program, Bright Beginnings, which provides a warm, supportive environment for infants, toddlers, preschool and pre-kindergarten children. Upgrades to the facility will enhance your child’s first social experience away from home.
