After the difficult year that the pandemic has dealt us, there has never been a greater need for youth to reconnect with nature, one another, and the exemplary role models and mentors that Y Camp has to offer. 

Spaces are filling up quickly! Make sure your camper gets a chance to experience Y Camp this summer.

Encompassing nearly 415 acres of forest, mountains, wetlands, and waterfront on Horsethief Reservoir, one could not ask for a more beautiful sampling of the Idaho wilderness. The facilities, built with kids in mind, appeal to adults as well as modern amenities and living accommodations. Located just 10 miles outside of Cascade, Idaho, YMCA Camp is more than just summer camp, it is also well equipped for your business or organization’s retreat, outdoor classroom, or wedding!
