About International Summer Camp


The WYA International Summer Camp is an exciting and intellectually enriching experience for young people aged 13 to 18. During this intensive one-week program, young people from all over the world come together to learn about the dignity of the human person and how this idea is the starting point for change in ourselves and the world. Participants learn to articulate and defend a vision of the human person that they bring back to their families, schools and communities. Both long-distance overnight and local day campers are welcome!

Camp will take place at the WYA Headquarters, located a few blocks away from Central Park, and close to many attractions of the city. Guided by our wonderful team of staff and counselors, campers will take part in a fun and enriching city adventure and an array of NYC excursions.
