Resident Camp

Camp changes lives. Camp introduces us to new friends, experiences, and adventures! Come join us for a week of outdoor exploration, twilight activities, and excitement.

Youth of all ages are able to develop positive relationships and a sense of belonging.  YMCA resident camps nurture the potential of youth and create a sense of community among campers of all ages through a wide variety of skill building outdoor program activities.

Resident camp combines well-trained young adult leaders with elementary, middle school and teenage campers for a week of outstanding physical activity and healthy living experiences.  During overnight camp programs both staff and campers develop lifelong friendships and memorable experiences.

Y resident camps offer campers opportunities to build and strengthen positive character values and appreciate the differences in others. Bonds built bring participants back year after year and can lead to lifelong engagement with the Y. Campers of all ages and abilities find success through the skill-building opportunities of camp programs, having fun and learning confidence and values take home from their Y resident camp experience.

"Camp has changed my life in many ways, from the people I meet, to the morals and values I learn.  Camp is my second family and a place I can call home." - (Camper)

"I just think it is a positive experience that all kids should have at least once in their lifetime!" - (Camper Parent)

"I was a little concerned that my daughter would be homesick while away at camp and that she might become sad. When camp was over, there were certainly tears in her eyes- she had been crying because she didn’t want camp to be over! If I had to see tears, these particular ones made me smile." - (Camper Parent)
