A variety of fun and educational activities are available to help kids explore their potential: high ropes adventure course, swimming, biking, archery, kayaking, fishing, sand volleyball, nature trails for hiking, music, team building, and day trips. Older campers learn about social responsibility and participate in community service projects.

At the Y, we know that when kids see what they accomplish, make new friends and feel like they belong, they are developing the confidence, character and teamwork they need to be successful in life.

Fun & Family Swim:

Enjoy lap swim and family time in our pool for fitness and fun all year long at the Lass Aquatics Center.
Make a splash every Friday, 4 – 6 p.m.


Camp Zehnder is proud to offer a variety of healthier snacks and ice cream at our Trading Post! These snacks are in line with the new standards of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act and with the USDA’s Smart Snacks Policy. They also meet the standards recommended by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation.

The Community YMCA’s goal is to create a healthier camp environment while offering snacks that are tasty and more nutritious. Many of these snacks were recently reformulated versions of some of the campers’ favorite treats (shhh…don’t tell your campers!)
