American Red Cross lifeguards supervise the lake area as campers learn to swim, snorkel, sail, row and funyak. We offer an intensive Life Guarding class which culminates in an on-sight real-life practical on our own waterfront.
Campers play in the water, bounce on the water trampoline, fly off the Aqua Launch, shoot down the Aqua Slide and wrestle on the Shark (water mat) all while wearing sunscreen!
Sailing is a longstanding favorite at Camp Yavneh. Sailors board our Sunfish sailboats, catamaran or large 15 foot full size sailboat to explore beautiful Lucas Pond. Campers learn the parts of the boat, rigging and de-rigging, tying knots, and the basics of sailing and boat safety.
Campers are able to relax beside beautiful Lucas Pond and learn how to bait a hook, cast and reel in a big one on our new fishing dock! Our lake is stocked with fish so there is plenty to catch.
Kayaking and Canoeing
Kayaking and canoeing offers campers the opportunity to learn to control a boat by themselves while being coached by a trained instructor in various handling techniques. We also have standing paddle boards which are challenging and fun!
