About YMCA Camp Timbers

Beautifully situated on 300 acres of nature, YMCA Camp Timbers is celebrating its 50th year of specializing in summer overnight camps for youth.  The wide variety of camp activities complement this natural beauty well – campers enjoy swimming in our private, spring-fed Piper Lake; experience adventure on our zip lines, climbing tower, and high ropes course; connect with nature while exploring our cedar bog, enjoying a horse ride, or hiking through a variety of diverse forest types.

Camp is fun.  We strive to go even deeper though – by creating opportunities for friendship making, by providing high-caliber staff role models, and by intentionally modeling our core values: caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.

If you’re interested in seeing YMCA Camp Timbers for yourself, please consider joining us for one of our upcoming Open House events at camp.  If you would prefer to tour camp at another time, please contact us at to discuss arranging a guided tour of camp.



What If I Have More Questions?

The decision to send a child to camp can be a big one, particularly for first-time families.  We’re here to help, because we believe in the impact of camp.  Feel free to contact us with your questions.
