YMCA Camp Lakewood

YMCA Camp Lakewood is not just any summer camp. It's that special time at the perfect place, with friends and memories your children will take with them throughout the rest of their lives. Help them to high-five every accomplishment, celebrate their growing independence and wonder of the world around them through the gift of overnight summer camp.

While campers love the sports, horseback riding, arts & crafts, water activities, caving, climbing, ziplining, camp games and more, great kids are grown into well-rounded individuals by also teaching respect, responsibility, belonging and accomplishment. Children gain knowledge of the world around them through culturally diverse staff, all within the incredibly fun and safe environment of the Y. This is why campers call Camp Lakewood "My Camp!"

Camp Lakewood offers four-day, one-week and four-week programs, including mini-sessions, traditional, ranch, leadership and wilderness programs. Sessions run from May 31 - August 12.
