YMCA Camp Ingersoll

94 Ingersoll Road
Portland, CT 06480

Located in Portland, YMCA Camp Ingersoll is more than a camp, it’s a Family. Every day, 650 campers gather at the Henry W. Coe Amphitheater to recite the Pledge of Allegiance followed by our Ingerpledge. Every day we commit to “accept challenges big and small, we pledge our heart to camp Ingersoll!” We know that our campers are unique and diverse which is why we provide a variety of programming tailored to all needs, but we do it with an emphasis on values and acceptance. Campers learn confidence at swim lessons, respect at the archery range, and how to make new friends at lunch. Our staff team is carefully screened, certified in First Aid and CPR, and comes complete with a registered nurse. They are hired based on their ability to establish a welcoming atmosphere where campers can be themselves while being encouraged to reach out of their familiar comfort zones. With a great combination of open field space, modern facilities and tranquil woodlands, this is the ideal place for children to grow in spirit, mind and body

Traditional Camp is everything that a summer camp experience should be. Campers have the opportunity to visit all of the specialty areas including ropes, archery, swimming, arts and crafts, boating and nature, while counselors individually tailor the remaining periods to their group’s interests and needs. There are programs for ages 4-16. All Traditional Camp Programs, except during a one week session, include swim lessons in the morning and free swim in the afternoon.

Specialty Camps give campers more time to learn skills and enjoy their special interests. Campers focus on their specialty in the morning and traditional activities in the afternoon. Specialty Camps include Aqua, Basketball, Baseball / Softball, Soccer, Horseback, Fort Building, Fishing, Golf, STEM, Wilderness, Media, Mega-Adventure, Campfire Cooking, Mega-Sports, Glee Camp, Let’s Dance Camp, Acting, Mega Blocks, Outdoor Adventure, Triathlon Camp and Game On.
