YMCA Camp Carson has been serving our community since 1940 through summer camps, outdoor education, and outreach programs. This summer, we invite you to join us as we create a space for your family to grow together in body, mind, and spirit through our Family Adventure Package. This package will allow families within the same household to stay in our rustic cabins for 3 days and 2 nights. Your family will have the opportunity to enjoy outdoor activities and build deeper relationships with one another in a beautiful, natural surrounding.

The Basics

Our 3-Day Family Adventure Packages will begin on June 26th. Family Adventure Packages will run Friday - Sunday as well as Tuesday - Thursday. Check in will be between 3:00 PM and 6:00 PM CST with checkout at 1:00 PM CST. This package includes:

  • A private cabin building with in-cabin bathrooms and a shared Bath House for showers

  • A chance to explore and play on your own

  • The space to enjoy physically distant activities such as time on the lake, fishing, hiking, and more

  • 6 boxed meals (including s'more supplies) during your time at camp
