Summer Resident Camp

Since 1948, Camp Carter YMCA has been a special place for youth to grow. Created especially for the youth of our community, there are few places where values are so important. At Camp Carter, each camper has the opportunity to learn, grow and have fun as they meet new friends, try new things and develop greater confidence in themselves.

At Camp Carter, children can be themselves in a fun and challenging environment where self-confidence, individuality and camaraderie flourish. The program is customized to the camper’s age and level of development. Every day is packed with sports and activities, which leave each camper with improved skills and exciting memories.
