Why is Mohawk for girls only?
The Board of Trustees, the administration, campers’ parents and the campers themselves all agree that the mission of YMCA Camp Mohawk is to provide rich and diverse group outdoor experiences for girls and young women in pursuit of developing character, leadership and values in accordance with traditional YMCA principles
This is not to say that Mohawk presents a shelter for girls to “hide” from boys. More so, it is a place to discover personal strengths, become more confident, and develop an enhanced sense of self. Here at Camp Mohawk we strive to be a close knit family, where girls can gain the confidence to be themselves, and develop friendships that last a lifetime.
