Camping & Outdoor Leadership

Youth, teens, and families discover a love of the outdoors, as well as develop values and leadership, through programs at Camp Orkila and Camp Colman, on expeditions with BOLD & GOLD (Boys & Girls Outdoor Leadership Development), and as members of Y Earth Service Corps.

Together we've accomplished a lot in 2019.

With the help of our volunteers, contributors, community partners, and camp staff, we created new opportunities, expanded our reach and addressed social inequities to help strengthen young people and communities.
