Summer Camps

Summer Resident Camp is an opportunity for your child to learn skills they can use for life. Through new experiences, new friendships and connections with nurturing counselors, your child can discover their potential and be encouraged to live a life of purpose.  


Retreats & Conferences

Beautiful location, modern accommodations, and excellent customer service are all a part of planning your staff or group retreat at Y Camp: Horsethief Reservoir.  Our staff will work with you to create a unique experience that will transform the way your people see themselves and each other.  Day retreats are good, but overnight retreats in an outdoor setting completely change the dynamics.  Conversations slow down, people engage at a different level and create open doors to explore new ideas and ways of work.  You and your team deserve the best in outdoor retreat experiences.  Talk with our staff and book your experience today.


Corporate Teambuilding

  Let us help you make your retreat or conference a more powerful experience for your team and members by taking advantage of our leadership development and teambuilding expertise.  Our professional staff have over 50 years of combined corporate teambuilding and leadership development experience.  We will customize a training/retreat to meet the challenges and goals you are working to overcome and meet.    “Having worked with several Fortune 500 companies across the country, I have seen a variety of teambuilding consultants.  The expertise and service that I experienced with the Y Camp staff is on par with the best in the country.”  Carolyn Casey, Business Consultant  


Alumni Project

Calling all Raggers!  Y Camp needs your help to complete our permanent Ragger’s Point at Y Camp: Horsethief Reservoir.  Don’t miss this opportunity to be a permanent part of our amazing new location by contributing a stone for the outer circle of the Ragger symbol.  Stones need to be bigger than a softball, but no larger than a volleyball.  They can be round, flat, have special meaning, be from anywhere in the world, etc.  Bring them to camp on the May 10th work day or drop them off anytime at our offices at 1177 W. State Street in Boise.
