Welcome to Camp Fuller!


YMCA Camp Fuller is a traditional co-educational summer camp for boys and girls ages 7-16. Our location on Point Judith Salt Pond is ideal for water activities as well as several land activities.

  • Water fun: swim, sail, canoe, kayak, windsurf, water skiing
  • Sports: archery, soccer, ropes course, biking, volleyball, yoga, basketball, skateboarding
  • Arts & Crafts: gardening, nature exploration, dance, music, chess, photography
 

Camp Fuller prides itself on a long-standing tradition of cultivating competent and experienced people. Many of our staff members are former campers who have a deep appreciation for camp and would like to share their experience and love for camp with the campers. We hire staff from around the country and around the world to provide diversity and a chance for cultural exchange. A health director, food service director, and on-site director provide leadership, supervision, and necessary health and safety experience.

Campers live with their counselors in one of four divisions: two for boys and two for girls. The division consists of seven to nine cabins with typically eight campers and two staff per cabin. The cabins and divisions are important family-like structures.

Join Our Team

Camp Fuller is looking for energetic, fun-loving staff to work with us and our campers for the summer. We hire individuals 18 years or older who are committed to an 9-week adventure (including a training week). Staff members are chosen on the basis of their maturity, ability, values, and their sincere desire to work and live with children. We provide training to staff before camp begins, which offers our staff resources and helpful tools to work with the children in a camp setting.
