Resident camping was pioneered by the YMCA in 1885, which still remains a leader in the field today.
YMCA Camp Carson has been contributing to this tradition since 1940. Over the years it has touched the lives of children and staff from around the Tri-State and around the world.
A session at YMCA Camp Carson may be the most positive experience your child will ever have, enormously impacting their overall growth and self image. Under Christian leadership in a SAFE and closely controlled environment, YMCA Camp Carson can provide each camper with:
* Fun and adventure through challenges.
* Better understanding and respect for self and others through group living and shared experiences.
* Appreciation and concern for the natural world.
* Greater self-reliance, self-respect, and self-confidence.
*Stronger Christian values.
* Greater understanding of the life and promises of Jesus Christ.
It is the purpose of YMCA Camp Carson to conduct a program of activities which emulates these objectives, endowing campers and leaders with values for living and a “closer walk with God.”
