This is MY camp


Countdown to Summer Camp 2016

Overnight Summer Camp

YMCA Camp Lakewood is where kids come in the summer time to have fun, learn new skills, make new friends, and to simply be a kid. Your camper will forget all about television, video games, and smartphones while discovering the ultimate childhood experience, all within the safe and trusted environment of the Y.

Camp Lakewood provides a well-rounded experience for campers and gets them outdoors to connect with nature.¬†With a 360-acre lake, over 5,000 acres of forest-covered hills, caves, creeks and more, there are many opportunities for natural exploration and experiential learning. Whether it’s campfires, swimming, archery, climbing tower, zipline, sports, canoeing, cookouts, fishing, kayaking or a multitude of camp games, every camper delights in waking up with a renewed sense of excitement as to what new activities each day at camp will bring.

The health and safety of each camper is our primary concern. All staff are trained in skills that emphasize safety, youth development and group dynamics. Each counselor is trained in CPR and first aid, and all water activities are closely supervised by staff who are lifeguard certified. A medical professional is always available in our well-equipped camp infirmary, and our local physician is on call to assist in emergencies.

What does it mean when everyone at Camp Lakewood says it’s, “My Camp!”? It means every one of our campers has a home away from home. It means every one of our campers has a special place where they can try new things without judgement. It means every camper knows a place where they have friends, where they feel safe, happy and wanted. It means every one of our campers has a camp, their camp, and they know the camper sitting next to them feels the exact same way. It means they are an important part of YMCA Camp Lakewood. So when asked, “Whose camp is this?” – we are excited to hear them say…. “MY CAMP!”
