We are located on Cape Cod, just one hour south of Boston, and situated on over 300 acres of forests, meadows and sparkling freshwater ponds.Camp Burgess for boys and Camp Hayward for girls are traditional brother-sister overnight camps located on opposite shores of Spectacle Pond.Our Teen programs offer service, leadership and adventure trips on Cape Cod and around North America.Our Outdoor Education Center and Retreat and Conference Center offer environmental science, adventure and teambuilding programs for school groups and other organizations, as well as facility rentals.The Emilson Family Camp offers a camp experience for the whole family.The Mill Pond Tennis Club in Hanover was purchased in 1998 and converted into our Mill Pond Branch YMCA. The facility housed a new kids’ gym, babysitting area, gymnasium, exercise area, and multipurpose room. In 2002, the Mill Pond Expansion Program was completed, thanks to the help of many volunteers and community supporters. An indoor aquatic center including a lap pool and a family fun pool with slide were added to the facilities. Other new services included a child care center, new locker rooms for all ages, family locker rooms, whirlpool and sauna, additional clay indoor/outdoor tennis courts, a teen center, community meeting rooms and more.
