Summer Adventure Camp

Registration Begins March 1, 2018

Register Online or at any YMCA Welcome Desk

YMCA Camps offer kids a chance to explore places, activities and ideas outside their normal lives. At camp, they discover new talents, new interests and new friends.

Parents have trusted YMCA camps for generations, because, they are experiences that help foster leadership, self-confidence and deepen respect for the environments and communities we live in. Adventure Camp offers the fun and freedom of being outdoors while learning new skills and making new friends.

New This Year!

New Locations:

We will be taking advantage of the beautiful environments around Whatcom County as well as incorporating the use of the Lynden and Bellingham YMCAs.

New Schedule:

Each week will consist of activities at 5 different locations. Age groups will be separated and be visiting locations on different days.

Camp Saturna:

For two weeks this summer, Adventure Camp will be based out of Camp Saturna, a 133-acre environmental education camp. Thanks to a generous partnership with Saturna Capital, our campers will enjoy the beautiful and interactive surroundings of Camp Saturna.
