Great camping since 1916, tucked in the Flint Hills
Since 1916, Camp Wood YMCA has provided high-quality camping programs in a caring family environment tucked within the beautiful Flint Hills of Kansas.
Gaining new skills, increasing self-respect and developing a sense of independence are trademarks of our program. Campers participate in life-changing, outdoor experiences that foster healthy decision-making, lasting friendships, skill development, and strengthened values in a safe, friendly environment.
Safety is our top priority. We are accredited by the American Camp Association – a process that has over 300 safety and quality standards to which we must adhere. Our dedicated staff are carefully screened, trained and certified (by such organizations as the Red Cross and the Certified Horsemanship Association) to serve as positive role models and help with your child’s skill development and growth. There is also a nurse on site while camp is in session and our camp doctor is local and on call, should we ever need him.
Our camp has a one-of-a-kind view, too. Sitting atop the Cottonwood River Valley with the Flint Hills as its backdrop, Camp Wood YMCA features 630 acres of Kansas Tallgrass Prairie and is the only YMCA camp in the United States located in this unique ecosystem.
Become a part of the Camp Wood YMCA family and start making the friendships and memories you’ll cherish forever.
