About Camp Wapsie

Camp Wapsie is the place to help young people build the character values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.  With our deep tradition in camping, We strive to instill these underlying principles into each camper during their time at camp. Here at YMCA Camp Wapsie, we are: For Youth Development, For Healthy Living, and For Social Development.  

YMCA Camp Wapsie is an Accredited camp of the ACA, (American Camp Association).  ACA camps participate in a voluntary and rigorous review of 300 unique national standards, designed to ensure a well-supervised, positive environment with controlled boundaries and organized programs. These standards are essential so kids can safely grow and thrive.  Learn more by visiting the ACA website.
