Family Camp - YCAMP

Family Camp




Since the early 1930’s, families have gathered at Y Camp in August for Family Camp - a relaxing, fun-for-everyone family vacation week. What makes Family Camp a great time? Delicious meals, served family style. Old friends catching up. Time to make new friends. Morning age-group activities for children ages two to high school, led by qualified and exuberant Y Camp Leaders with grown-ups free for their own activities or just lingering over a morning coffee. Days are graced with meaningful Family Camp traditions, rich in spirit and heart: Inspiration Point, the Carnival, Aunt Fifi, the Arty Show, the Dance, the Leader vs. Campers Softball game. Families share cabins with two to three other families, walk everywhere, enjoy horses, climbing wall, zipline, a large swimming pool with a 35’ tall slide, play in the creek, arts and crafts, volleyball, basketball, ping pong and more. From reveille to taps, Y Camp can renew your senses of how life should be.
