Camping & Outdoor Leadership

The YMCA has been the leader in Summer Camp for over 130 years. Over this time, we’ve fine-tuned our programs to meet youth and their families wherever they are in their journey with the outdoors. From local day camps to week-long overnight camps, to multi-week expeditions across the Cascades, we believe that no matter your background or summer schedule, there’s a place for your family at a Y camp.

Pick Your Own Adventure

Day Camp

Offering fun, active days spent learning new skills and making lifelong friends, our Day Camps offer a high level of flexibility and allow your child to come running home with new stories at the end of each day.

Overnight Camp

Camp Colman and Camp Orkila have been staples of Washington for over 100 years. They offer youth the chance to explore their individuality, become a part of their own community, and enjoy the classic American camp experience of archery, rock climbing, and s’mores over the campfire.

Outdoor Leadership

When you think of adventure, think of Boys & Girls Outdoor Leadership. With expeditions ranging from 8-22 days, our trips teach skills in multi-cultural leadership and wilderness survival. Young teens will return inspired by the natural beauty of the world and armed with the confidence to tackle anything.
