YMCA Camp Ockanickon, Inc. is an 800 acre day and overnight camping facility for all serving more than 20,000 youth and families each year, providing a top quality program in a safe, supportive environment led by role models.
Our YMCA affiliation means we include the Y’s 4 core values in every aspect of our programming, demonstrating the importance of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Our experienced counselors and programming promote friendships, positive self-esteem, healthy development and encourage individuality and independence.
In addition to our summer camp programs, our YMCA Camps are open year-round, providing families, schools, groups, organizations and kids the opportunity to experience the Camps’ positive programming every day of the year. Before and after school programs serve hundreds of children in local schools. More than 15,000 school students participate in onsite Outdoor Education and Recreation programs, families enjoy special retreat weekends and children benefit from an array of year-round programs designed to build confidence, character and strong relationships.
At Camp, we believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we work together to invest in our kids and our neighbors. That is why we work every day to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
