YMCA Camp Reed is the oldest summer camp in the Inland Northwest.
Founded in 1915, Camp Reed has been the premier spot for summer camp adventures for kids. Originally starting with 15 acres, camp Reed now has 555 acres. While it has grown over the years, it still maintains the magic of camp and the rich traditions of YMCA summer camps. With activities like archery, climbing walls, mountain biking, arts and crafts, swimming and more, Camp Reed is an excellent place for kids to explore new interests. Throughout the week campers will sleep out under the stars, choose a unit activity, play all-camp games, and interact with campers of all ages and demographics.
Campers are sorted by gender and placed together in groups of similar age and grade. This allows YMCA staff to optimize the camper experience and deliver a week of camp that is both age appropriate and unique. The mission of Camp Reed 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. By practicing our mission, we ensure each camper has the best week of their summer. Our staff are some of the best and brightest the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Attending university all across the country, we train our staff to understand the role and importance they have as a camp counselor while still delivering a fun camp experience.
At YMCA Camp Reed, we strive for kids to discover their full potential. With over 100 years of YMCA camping experience, we blend tradition with a new generation of fun. Camp Reed allows kids to learn self-confidence, interpersonal skills, and build friendships free from technology, the stress of societal norms and pressures of the world. Your children will engage with staff who are positive role models in our community and who ensure your campers will be safe, experience the traditions of camp, and most importantly, have the best week ever. Camp Reed has become a home away from home for years in the Inland Northwest. We cannot wait to see you there, “It’s the best!”
