Take the adventure to the next level with our overnight camp! Camp Lakewood provides a well-rounded experience for campers and gets them outdoors to connect with nature. With a 360-acre lake and more than 5,000 acres of forest-covered hills, caves, creeks and more, there are many opportunities for natural exploration. Whether it's campfires, swimming, archery, climbing tower, zip line, sports, canoeing, cookouts, fishing, and kayaking every camper delights in waking up with a renewed sense of excitement as to what new activities each day at camp will bring. Download the 2019 Camp Lakewood brochure.


The Gateway Region YMCA has made a commitment to provide older youth and teens, ages 14-17, with leadership development opportunities in our YMCA programming efforts. Our Counselor-in-Training Program is an opportunity for participants to develop leadership and job skills. CITs will be provided with hands-on experience working with young campers and the opportunity to cultivate their skills and knowledge in the day camp setting. CIT members must enjoy working with children, have a positive attitude, want to learn and practice leadership skills and be a good role model for campers. CITs work under the supervision of a Senior Counselor during the camp day.
