Welcome to the Connecticut Shoreline.  Weather you live in the community or traveling to the area, we invite you to visit the Valley Shore YMCA.

The Y is more than just a pool, a gym or wellness center.  The Y is a community of caring individuals and of families where honesty, respect, responsibility and, where building character values are a priority.  All YMCA members experience a sense of belonging and ownership that lasts a lifetime.

For over 90 years, the Valley-Shore YMCA has had a positive impact on the lives of those who live, work, or visit the shoreline and the Connecticut River Valley area, by promoting programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body.  

Summer Camps

YMCA Camp Shore

Held right here at the Valley Shore YMCA, Camp Shore helps children learn about who they are and help them become who they want to be. It’s about developing new skills, healthy habits, reaching goals, and building relationships.  We help children gain self-confidence and build character while focusing on the whole child in spirit, mind and body.

YMCA Camp Echo Rock

YMCA Camp Echo Rock is a child-centered, outdoor adventure program unlike anything else in the area.  Held right on Powers Lake in East Lyme, we use exciting activities to help children make friends, learn skills, gain confidence and make magical summer memories.  Campers will have time for archery, swimming, boating, arts & crafts, sports, games, and outdoor living skills such as fire building, outdoor cooking and camping.  Our well-trained professional role models create a culture where campers feel supported, encouraged and valued.
