Through the decades, Y Camp has seen the world change but has remained committed to the belief that the key to our future lies with friendship, character, faith, leadership and a sense of community. Come to camp on May 26th and celebrate with us for a day full of activities and memories. 

The Day at Camp

Starting at 10:00 am, camp will be open to all with staffed activities offered alongside opportunities to enjoy camp on your own. Lunch will be provided by food trucks on main camp. Meet with old friends or make new ones; camp is yours for the day!

Following the busy day around camp, we are offering a HUGE dinner for all on the Lower Athletic field at 6:00 pm. Meal is free and all are encouraged to join. During and after dinner, guests will enjoy an entertaining campfire program that will bring together popular skits and songs from the past and present. After the meal and program, the night will be complete with fireworks before Y Camp says “good night” to the last one hundred years and prepares to say “good morning” to the next century.
