Y Camp is always open to those who gave their time, talent and treasures to serve campers and families over the decades. Being a Y Camp Leader or a member of the staff team is a special honor and something we do not take lightly. It’s a bond that holds the alumni of the Des Moines Y Camp together. It stretches across state lines, time zones and generations.
