At the Y, we believe children discover themselves through interactions with others and having the freedom to explore. YMCA Camp at Horsethief Reservoir immerses children in a community where making friends is natural, exploring new interests is encouraged, and discovering inner strength is guaranteed. YMCA Camp teaches self-reliance, instills a love for nature and the outdoors, and builds character and leadership—all amidst the fun of camp fires, canoeing, archery, friends, zip-lining, paddleboarding, mentorships, ropes course, and so much more. YMCA Camp at Horsethief Reservoir is positively the best way to change a child’s life.
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.
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

Outdoor Leadership Development is a transformative teen leadership program that participants experience in an outdoor wilderness environment. Commonly called “BOLD/GOLD,” (Boys/Girls Outdoor Leadership development), the program is divided into culturally-diverse groups of boys and girls ages 13-16 who participate in physical, cognitive, and social-emotional outdoor challenges, alongside adventure and teamwork. All the elements of this intentionally-designed program help teens develop friendships, learn new skills and foster a sense of belonging, which are all critical to them reaching their full potential in life.
