Who We Are

YMCA Camp Watia is an overnight summer camp community with big impact! We are a tight-knit family committed to strengthening  the YMCA's core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility in every camper and staff member. Every summer is filled with friends new and old, adventures big and small, and connections that will last a lifetime. We provide opportunities that inspire campers to dare, discover, and dream.

Our goal for every camper is to: 

  • Dare to try new things and learn new skills.
  • Make new friends and build relationships.
  • Discover to be their true and best self.
  • Gain independence and self-reliance.
  • Dream of what is possible and gain the confidence to step out of their comfort zone.
