YMCA Camp Timbers

Y Family Camps

The YMCA Camp Timbers Family Camps are weekend camping opportunities for families (with children of all ages). These weekends offer families the opportunity to experience Camp Timbers’ beautiful 300 acres however you choose. Relax on a lawn chair with a book by the lakeside or experience the adventure of coasting down our over 1,000 ft. Eagle’s Flight Zip Line.

Starting from the moment you arrive at YMCA Camp Timbers until you leave, you can choose from a variety of social to physically challenging activities that you and your family can do together. All of our activities are safe, fun and enriching and are built to encourage character building and teamwork. Meals, lodging and programming are included, with a flexible schedule of camp activities and events that allow you to do as much or as little as your would like. Open to Y and non-Y members.
