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.
Please note that all dates, pricing, and camp limits are subject to change. With the effects of COVID-19, our 2020 camp plans remain fluid, so please check our website, Facebook page or email updates for the latest information.
