Impacting Youth and Teens at YMCA Camp Cormorant!

One way your kind-hearted gift makes an impact is through Camp Cormorant. For over 100 years, YMCA Camp Cormorant has offered spirit, tradition, leadership, and exceptional facilities to campers. The camp is nestled on 80 acres of wooded property with an extensive beach front on Big Cormorant Lake near Lake Park, Minnesota. Camp offers a kaleidoscope of activities – from horseback riding, aquatic adventures, ropes course, arts and crafts, to cozy campfires, and much more! 

Each summer, we open the camp doors to hundreds of children, offering numerous scholarships so more kids and teens are able to experience the joy of camp – no matter their background! We embrace diversity, providing children a platform to explore, forge friendships, develop life skills, find joy, and create memories that last a lifetime.

Your Gift Matters 

Your contribution can make a significant impact, enabling us to continue this vital work we do at YMCA Camp Cormorant! And even more – when you give to the Y you are giving to so much more than just Camp Cormorant. You are also supporting our child care, swimming lessons, youth sports, youth clubs, youth food programs, senior mealsgroup fitness programs, and so much more. Thank you for helping us strengthen our community!
