Alumni - YCAMP


Dear Y Camp Alumni and Friends,

Remember that feeling in your stomach when your car arrived at the top of the hill? “Welcome to the Family” chimes through your head and you start to feel all the greatness of the valley you are entering. At the bottom of the hill remember seeing the pool and athletic fields or Pioneer for the first time. You pass Inspiration Point and remember the closeness you experienced with your friends and the inspiration you felt. As you drive through camp you see the stage and memories begin to rush back of standing with your group of campers waiting for your act in the Arty Show. You are at Y Camp!

We are always looking to update our Alumni database. Please send your contract information (name, email, address, phone, camper and/or leader years) to .

The Yea Bo Newsletter is available each April and October. Keeping in touch with our alumni is very important. If you do not receive the Yea Bo Newsletter please send your contact information to  

As always there is an open invitation for you to visit us at camp whenever you are in the area. We welcome the opportunity to share your camp memories and to show you Y Camp as it is today.

All the best,
David Sherry
Executive Director

Amy Joanning
Development Coordinator/ Registrar/ Alumni Coordinator
