2021 Camp Anderson Announcement

Camp Anderson will be replaced with Y Discover Camp in 2021! Camp will be run by many of our former Camp Anderson staff and will have the same activities that our campers love. Campers will rotate between YMCA Camp Anderson and our Bakerview Sports Center each day.

"I love letting kids enjoy and appreciate the great outdoors while strengthening the Y core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility in each Camper."
Running Bear
