"Camp Orkila is an experience that every child should have"

The YMCA of Greater Seattle set up its first permanent camping home in 1906 on Orcas Island, starting what would later be named Camp Orkila. While its facilities and staff might look a little differently than it used to, its dedication to strengthening community has continued to grow. Rooted in nurturing the potential of youth, promoting healthy living and fostering social responsibility, these same goals still drive the Y staff every day at Camp Orkila.
