Welcome to Camp Edwards! My name is Rafael Sanchez, and I am the YMCA Camp Edwards Director. While working on my music major, one of my friends invited me to my first Y camp, and I fell in love with the transformative power of camp. I have been working at various camps for the past five years, and this is my 2nd season at Camp Edwards. There is nothing like being outdoors and exploring nature while making life-long friends.
It is my goal to foster an environment of safety and inclusivity for all our campers. I hope to see your Camper soon. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me at [email protected]
