Kids to SYC Camp Season 4!

Each summer at SYC camp, kids come to practice balanced living in a fun-filled setting. Summer Youth Corporation is a small non-profit summer camp that serves 50 children from on or around Navajo Nation in Thoreau, NM. In Season 4 of camp, our oldest campers will be embarking on a longer backpacking trip while our in-camp campers will be participating in our regular camp routines with special rock climbing, adventure day, and camping trips. While campers attend camp for free, part of SYC's mission also includes offering well-paying positions to our hardworking staff members. Let's make Season 4 of SYC the best summer yet!
