Lynch/van Otterloo YMCA Camps


Experience the magic of Children's Island, a beautiful ocean oasis in the middle of Marblehead Harbor that has been overpating for over 65 years. Campers take the 15 minute Hannah Glover Ferry ride to and from camp each day. The stunning, rustic island setting offers unique opportunities to explore the seacoast while swimming, sailing, snorkeling and kayaking. The Island also offers an art barn stocked with arts and crafts activities, a saltwater pool, sports, Gaga pit and more. With weekly theme and STEAM activities, this island experience is like no other day camp on the North Shore. Children's Island Boat Transport: Pickering Wharf 23 Congress St, Salem MA, State Street Landing, 63 Front Street, Marblehead, MA 01945.
