Passion, Purpose, Promise: The Campaign for Camp Speers YMCA

Since 1948, Camp Speers has been a place of connection, exploration, accomplishment, belonging, risk taking, and welcome for thousands of children, teens and adults.  We have nurtured individual’s growth while creating a world-wide Camp family.

Camp Speers’ facilities have grown from one old inn surrounded by borrowed tents to a campus of more than 60 buildings, miles of trails and roadways, and dozens of activity venues surrounding the pristine waters of Lake Nichecronk.  Building upon our accomplishments and fortified by our recent merger with the Philadelphia Freedom Valley YMCA, we are excited to envision and plan for our future – one in which we expand our Camp family by providing MORE CAMP for MORE where ALL may realize their Passion, Purpose and Promise!

Launched in July 2015, Passion, Purpose, Promise: The Campaign for Camp Speers will raise $4 million to support the renovation and expansion of Camp facilities and  programs.  We will expand and enhance the equestrian center, waterfronts, Day Camp village, cabins, trails, high-ropes course and dining and program lodges.  We will build a new program pavilion and performing arts center, welcome and heritage center, nature center, floating classroom, family village, leadership and adventure village and educational farm.

Please join us in building this exciting future.
