Life-changing transformations await your child at the Valley of the Sun YMCA overnight camps.

Overnight camp teaches self-reliance, a love for nature and the outdoors, and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership—all amidst the fun of camp fires, bugle calls, canoeing, archery, talent shows, and meaningful relationships.

Camp Sky-Y and Chauncey Ranch make our children better people. This is our goal, our passion, our mission. It’s what separates us from all other camps. Our activities, from rock climbing to dance to swimming, emphasize human values such as self-esteem, caring and responsibility.

These life-changing transformations essentially will be invisible in the eyes of your kids; they’ll just have fun. But these traits, by all known standards of humanity, are values your children can carry with them always. They will be guideposts by which they will be measured as they pass through life. Do they treat their brothers and sisters with love and respect? Later on, their wives or husbands with honesty and caring? And their own children with the adoration you have for them today?

We keep all of this in mind while making sure your children have the time of their life. Activities in the weeklong camps range from ceramics and photography to bouldering and ranch work. All the while, your children will be learning internal values that are not emphasized in summer camps offered by other public and private institutions.

While all camp activities are centered around the core values and character traits so important to the Y mission, our specialty camps help to reinforce them in positive, nurturing environments. Here are the specialty overnight camps the Y offers:
