Celebrating A Milestone: 75 Years of Camp Carter

Since YMCA Camp Carter opened its gates in 1948, thousands of kids, adults and families have enjoyed the property, activities and lodging at this unique location. Located on 360 acres of beautiful land just 7 miles from downtown, our property serves as a great retreat and oasis inside the city of Fort Worth. As we mark the 75th anniversary of this community jewel, we encourage neighbors, families and alumni to find a meaningful way to reconnect and further the reach of our beloved camp.
