Attend an Open House Here at Camp!

Camp Speers welcomes you to join an open house and enjoy a guided tour, learn about camp programs, get to know the staff, and try out some of our favorite camp activities. This will help kids build confidence and independence even before camp starts and allow children to meet some of the people they will spend time with while at camp. Our open houses offer all of this free of charge.

Bog Hike Tours

Come to Camp Speers YMCA to experience our protected bog, which is a relic of the last ice age and now a permanently protected haven that provides a unique outdoor experience. Registration is required, but there is no cost to join the tour. All hikes are from 9:30am to 11:30am.

* Please note: Our bog trail path is a moderate level hike containing a fairly rocky terrain. It is highly recommended that hikers wear sturdy shoes, bring a water bottle, and contact us ahead of time if there are any accommodations you will require to help you be successful in your time at Camp Speers YMCA.
