Camp Lakewood

YMCA Camp Lakewood is a coed summer residential camp for ages 6-17 located on 5200 wooded acres and large lake. We get kids outdoors exploring and learning in a safe Y environment with a culturally-diverse staff. Kids experience water activities, sports, high adventure, equestrian, arts & crafts, nature, caving and more, along with personal growth and making new friends.

YMCA Camp Lakewood’s summer overnight camp for boys and girls ages 6-17 provides a well-rounded experience for campers by getting them outdoors, making friends and conquering new skills. A country-setting with 5,200 acres, lake, caves and creeks create many opportunities for adventure and exploration. Four, seven and 14-day camp programs are offered; also ranch, leadership and wilderness programs, with optional electives including high adventure, paintball, horsemanship and more. While campers love horseback riding, crafts, water activities, caving, climbing, ziplining, and more, kids also learn respect, responsibility and accomplishment through our culturally-diverse staff, all within a fun and safe YMCA environment. This is why campers - and parents - call Camp Lakewood "My Camp"! Camp Lakewood also offers a 4-day/3-night Winter Camp program for kids ages 7-17 from Dec. 27-30 each year, which offers all of the fun of summer camp with a winter time twist.
