Summer Camp

Covid 19 Update:
Due to concerns regarding the Covid 19 Virus we have created a program called Family Connection to deliver the camp experience with social distancing guidelines in place to increase the safety of participants and staff. Learn more by visiting here.


For 100 years, the Des Moines Y Camp has been filled with songs, laughter, adventures and friendship. Summer Camp is the foundation on which Y Camp is built. Overnight Camp, Day Camp, Family Camp and our amazing Partner Camps all work to bring the impact and value of camp to all who enter the Valley. If you’re looking for the ultimate camp experience, Summer Camp is the place to start.  Find your next adventure at the Des Moines Y Camp!
