Speers 75th News Post

Join us to celebrate 75 years of amazing camp experiences!

We proudly opened Camp Speers in 1948 as the first ever racially-integrated American YMCA summer camp, and we stand true to those roots today by offering amazing camping programs to children and families of all backgrounds, religions, and economic standing.

For 75 years, Camp Speers YMCA has been a place where kids can unplug and connect to nature, fun, and new friendships. It’s a place where the Y values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility are woven into everything we do.

We hope you’ll join us!
