Specialty Camp - YMCA Camp Silver Beach | YMCA of South Hampton Roads
Help Desk Software

Specialty Camp serves ages 11–16. While CSB has plenty of activities to keep campers engaged some campers enjoy committing more time to one activity. Our Specialty Camps are a great way for campers to do so. During four days of camp, campers will spend half of each day in their chosen specialty camp. This gives campers the time to develop a greater skill set in the activity.
*The fee for Specialty Camp is $300 in addition to the camp fee. Campers in Traditional, Two Week, and TAC can take part in Specialty Camp. Campers in LDP and Expedition Camp cannot.
