Overnight Camp at YMCA Camp Letts

At Camp Letts Overnight Camp, kids become a community as they learn how to be more independent and collaborative while engaging in physical, social and educational activities. The building blocks are always the same, but we take pride in the fact that every week with us is different. 

Kids try new activities, make friends with new people, and make memories that last a lifetime. Overnight Camp at YMCA Camp Letts opens up a whole new world of summer fun!
