YMCA Camp Anderson has been exciting and motivating the children of Skagit County for more than 50 years. Located on Lake 16, just east of Conway, YMCA Camp Anderson is 40 acres of nature that sparks imagination, builds self-esteem, forges friendships, and gives kids a summer they will always remember. Safety, high-quality staff, Y core values, and great activities are the foundation of our camp. 

EXPLORERS & TRAILBLAZERS

Explorers: entering grades 1-3
Trailblazers: entering grades 4-6

Nearly every day at YMCA Camp Anderson, our campers can be found playing in the woods, swimming and making memories. Every Friday morning is spent playing Capture the Flag in the woods, so make sure to come dressed in camouflage. 

 

CHALLENGERS

As of Summer 2020, Challengers will no longer be a part of Camp Anderson. Programming is currently under construction.
