Our mission is to enhance personal growth, Christian values, and a sense of community in a safe wilderness setting. Through active participation in unique challenges and new relationships, Camp Reed transforms ideals into lasting behaviors. We embrace and teach the YMCA’s core values of respect, honesty, responsibility, and caring.
We are proud to have YMCA Camp Reed accredited by the American Camp Association, which means that we care enough to undergo a thorough (up to 300 standards) review of our operation, a comprehensive process covering everything from staff qualifications and training to emergency management.
American Camp Association collaborates with experts from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other youth-serving agencies to assure that current practices at our camp reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation. Camps and ACA form a partnership that promotes growth and fun in an environment committed to safety.
