YMCA Camp Lakewood is not just any overnight summer camp. It's that special time at the perfect place, with friends and memories your children will take with them throughout 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.
Camp Lakewood offers mini-sessions, traditional, equestrian, leadership and wilderness programs. Along with sports, horseback riding, arts & crafts, water activities – including our NEW inflatable water park feature, 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!"
