About Mystic Lake YMCA Camp

Since 1926 Mystic Lake YMCA Camp has been providing children and families with outstanding programs focused on helping them grow. Sessions at camp focus on the character values of honesty, caring, respect and responsibility within each activity. Through our character development we are able to foster social responsibility, self-confidence, friendships, and a sense of belonging during your child’s stay with us. The staff at Mystic Lake YMCA Camp are highly trained and very committed to the goals of camp. References and previous work experiences are thoroughly reviewed, and criminal background checks are conducted prior to hiring. They are hard working individuals who are dedicated, experienced, responsible, enthusiastic, positive and FUN! All staff members are trained in CPR and First Aid, and specialists have certifications specific to their area of expertise.  

At Mystic Lake YMCA Camp, our goals are centered around helping each child: 

Learn about social responsibility through environmental stewardship, community living and working with one another in a group setting that builds friendships.  

Develop and learn new skills to help improve their sense of self-worth and confidence by creating an accepting environment where all are welcome and everyone belongs.
