Summer Overnight Camp

At YMCA Camp Carter Overnight Camp, campers live, play and build deep bonds with their peers. Campers must rely on the others in their cabin groups to share daily responsibilities.

Overnight Camp is for ages 7-17, runs from Sunday afternoon until Friday evening and includes 15 meals and overnight accommodations in a fully climate controlled cabin that is led by a senior counselor with overnight camp experience and each unit is led by an upper class college student or graduate studying education, recreation or another appropriate field of study. Campers will spend time with their cabin group, making new friends, exploring the property and participating in all kinds of fun activities like climbing the 60′ climbing wall or hiking to see Old Man Tucker’s truck.

Cabin groups will come together as units during the week and participate in camp fires, cookouts and group competitions and games.

Everyone in camp will meet for meals, messages and devotions and to sing camp songs at the top of their lungs.

$625 per week for member campers, $725 week for non members.
