Overnight Summer Camp

YMCA Camp Lakewood’s summer overnight camp for boys and girls ages 6-17, only 90 minutes south of St. Louis, provides a well-rounded experience for campers by getting them outdoors having fun, making friends and conquering new skills. A 360-acre lake, 5,200 wooded acres, caves and creeks create many opportunities for adventure, exploration and experiential learning.

YMCA Camp Lakewood offers four and seven-day camp programs, and also ranch, leadership (CIT & LIT) and wilderness programs, with optional electives including high adventure, advanced arts & crafts, paintball, SNAG golf, horsemanship and more.

While campers love sports, horseback riding, arts & crafts, water activities, caving, climbing, ziplining, camp games and more, great kids are grown into well-rounded individuals by teaching respect, responsibility, belonging and accomplishment. Children gain knowledge of the world around them through culturally-diverse staff, all within the incredibly fun and safe environment of the Y. This is why campers call Camp Lakewood “My Camp”!
