YMCA Camps. Where kids get outside, unplug and have fun!


Camps at the YMCA share one thing: they’re about discovery. Kids have the opportunity to explore, find new talents, try new activities, gain independence, and make lasting friendships and memories—and they’re fun too!


YMCA camp has a way of transforming kids. It takes a child away from their normal routine and creates a safe environment for them to overcome challenges. With the outdoors as a backdrop, staff design activities to teach life lessons, like persistence in completing a difficult task, creativity when solving problems, and working together as a group to achieve a goal. Each camp experience nurtures character development through our core values: Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility.


Our camp programs offer youth opportunities to experience camping through both overnight and day camps. Y camps are not just for summer. Year-round opportunities exist at many of our membership centers and resident camps.
