Overnight Camp DSCN2427-X3

Camp Speers YMCA offers overnight sessions for campers ages 7- 16. We are committed to providing each camper a fun and exciting experience that will create lasting memories and friendships.

One-Week Sessions  One-week sessions give campers the opportunity to unplug and connect.  They engage with peers, learn how to foster friendships, and select from a variety of activities where they can enhance their skills.  Campers go on an overnight camp-out where they cook over a fire, sleep under the stars (or a lean-to) and explore Speers’s pristine wilderness.

Two-Week Sessions One week of fun just isn’t enough? Join us summer of 2020 for our two week session options. Campers will get to choose extra activity periods, extend their friendships, and participate in fun weekend activities.
