Camp Speers YMCA
Speers embraces 1,100 beautifully forested acres in the heart of the Pocono Mountains. At the center of Camp, 36-acre Lake Nichecronk offers an unspoiled natural environment to explore and enjoy. Located just a few miles from the Delaware National Water Gap and a couple hours from downtown Philadelphia and New York City, Camp Speers has been providing the perfect mountain get-away for campers and families since 1948.
Camp Speers has two main village centers, Eljabar and Speers. Eljabar is the summer home to Dragonfly Forest, a camp for youth with special medical needs. Speers is the village for our traditional overnight camp.
Each village features fun and engaging program areas, lodging, and dining facilities. Check out the photo gallery below and our virtual tour for pictures and more information on each village, which are available for retreats in the spring and fall.
The equine facilities are conveniently located in the middle of Camp and feature two riding arenas, a large paddock, and a barn. We offer horsemanship in both English and Western disciplines. From the Center, campers can enjoy riding miles of trails throughout Camp.
