Overnight Camp

YMCA Overnight Camps are a home away from home for campers ages 5 - 15.

We have three overnight camps, Camp Kanata in Wake Forest, Camp Sea Gull in Arapahoe and Camp Seafarer in Arapahoe. Our camps on the coast focus on seamanship and offer summer sessions in one, two, or four weeks,

Camp Kanata is on 150 acres of woods, lakes and trails in Wake Forest, North Carolina. Camp Kanata is offered in one week sessions. 

All three overnight camps are led by highly qualified, trained counselors who were often campers and CILTs themselves. 

Summer 2020 Decision

Like you, we were looking forward to another amazing summer at Camp. However, after much thoughtful consideration, we will not be running traditional Overnight Summer Camps this summer.

This was one of the toughest decisions we’ve had to make. But it is the right one for us.

Due to the size of our overnight camps and our unique program design, the reality of COVID-19 simply does not allow us to provide the safe and exceptional experience that is a traditional overnight camp summer.
