The Island's most all-inclusive adventure camp

Amazing things happen when kids unplug and reconnect with others! Camp Terra Mare provides a fun, safe experience for children to learn new skills, build self-confidence, and make lasting friendships. Have your child experience the best of summer on Martha’s Vineyard with the Island’s most affordable, all-inclusive, full day adventure camp! Our fun focused philosophy helps build confidence, develop leadership skills, and encourage teamwork.

Camp Terra Mare is a licensed camp that adheres to all guidelines set forth by the Department of Public Health. We are tuned in to the needs of today’s youth and the importance of instilling the four core values of the Y: caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility, throughout our programs. The camp leadership staff consists of professionals dedicated to the mission and philosophies of the YMCA where we build strong kids, strong families, and strong communities. Our purpose is to provide an enriching experience in a safe and structured developmentally appropriate program, one that will provide a positive and enriching long-lasting memory for your son or daughter.

“My children absolutely loved this program. They came home happy, tired and full of exciting stories, new games and new friends.”

“The Y camp is wonderful! My child has been going here for the past 3 years. There is always a fun story to share each day. The staff are fantastic. My daughter is already asking about next summer!”

“The Y is a community, an extension of our family unit in many respects. The Y staff have taken the time to listen and get to know our family and the children and foster community and values every day. They supervise the children extremely well and communicate regularly. They genuinely care about the kids and my children are always happy to go and happy when I pick them up. Their Y experience has been nothing short of awesome. The Y staff work so hard to create a memorable, fun and engaging experience for kids of all ages and encourage positive experiences and relationship building. It's honestly the best program on the island.”

"Best. Summer. Ever!"
