Investing in Youth
The Y is for Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility. We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. At camp, thousands of youth are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors and achievement — right now and in the future.

Camp is currently looking for a variety of vehicles including a minivan, suburban, atv and golf cart. We need a minivan our suburban for transportation of campers for our Wilderness Trips program. A golf cart or atv would allow us to travel around camp more efficiently, in case of emergencies, and for maintenance projects. Contact us if you have something you'd consider donating!
Kayaks | Cost $300/kayak
We are looking to replace several of our older kayaks. Kayaks are a great introductory boat that are easy for campers to learn how to use. Campers love taking kayaks out during hobbies and open waterfront times. They are also utilized during many individual nights to take trips to dark lake, herde lake, or to the sand bar!
Stand Up Paddle Boards | Cost $700/SUP & Paddle
This program would offer the opportunity for youth to learn a new skill and provide additional ways to experience the great outdoors while at camp. It is relatively easy for anyone to do and there are great health benefits from paddleboarding. We currently have a few boards and received a grant for 2 more so we are just a few more away from being able to offer it as a hobby option!
Camp Capital Improvement
We are excited to have received a $120,000 of matching grants to support needed improvements to the Main Lodge. Donations of any size can help make this project a reality. Please contact us if you'd like to learn more about the project.
