Summer Adventures Begin at the Y

Camping, like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. But few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities.


Camping teaches self-reliance, a love for nature and the outdoors, and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership—all amidst the fun of camp fires, bugle calls, canoeing, archery, talent shows, and meaningful relationships.

With the careful guidance of our trained staff, campers will learn core values that will last forever. They’ll explore. They’ll play. They’ll grow. And they’ll have an incredible amount of fun!

Safe, Licensed Program

Safety is our motivation at the Y. We hold our programs to the very highest standards through internal assessments and external inspections. Many of our camps voluntarily fulfill with third party requirements and regulation, including state-licensing and/or ACA accreditation. This helps further ensure a safe, healthy and worthwhile camping experience.

Certified, Well-Trained Staff

Y counselors are dedicated to making sure camp is an amazing experience for every camper. Each “Professional Role Model” has the knowledge and training to make each moment of your camper’s summer fun and enriching. Our staff believes in developing youth through nurturing the potential of every camper.

Financial Assistance Available to Qualified Families

We work hard throughout the year so everyone can be a part of the Y. Our annual Strong Kids Campaign makes financial assistance available for those who qualify. For more information or for application materials, please contact your local YMCA.
