Parent Information

See You This Summer!


Since 1926, Mystic Lake has offered quality camping programs for children and teens. We are excited to welcome your family to join us for our 97th summer.  Give your child a summer they’ll never forget at Mystic Lake YMCA camp! 

This year we have a new camp registration system and are excited to launch it.  If you are a returning family and remember your login information- it will continue to work with our new system, however,   you will need to complete all registration information including family details.  We believe this new software will be easier and more streamlined for our families as we move forward.

Each child will have the opportunity to make great friends, learn new skills, meet positive role models and leave our program with a higher level of confidence, maturity and understanding of our four core values- honesty, caring, respect and responsibility. Sessions Offered: ALL
