a rich history
Since 1928 YMCA Camp Chandler has provided youth with the opportunity to build meaningful relationships, develop new skills, and create memories that last a lifetime. Camp Chandler’s highly dedicated, enthusiastic, and caring staff not only ensure that campers have a fun and safe camping experience, but they also strive to build character, make a difference, and change the lives of each and every camper that comes through the gate.
Camp Chandler adheres to the philosophy that the resident camp setting offers a twenty-four hour living experience which can provide opportunities for campers and staff to develop more fully as individuals. Campers attend chapel twice a day at either the scenic outdoor chapel overlooking the lake or the brand new indoor chapel. We believe that campers should have a growth experience that involves an acceptance of social responsibility, a sense of moral values, and an awareness of spiritual values.
EACH DAY IS AN ADVENTURE!
Whether you are looking for individual, small group, or camp-wide fun, we definitely have something for you! Campers are grouped according to age and gender. They live in cabins with up to 13 other campers and at least 2 counselors. Friendships grow as they live, share meals, laugh, and play together during a full week of fun! Campers are given the opportunity to participate in more than 20 different activities like horseback riding, skiing, archery, sailing, the high ropes course, and more.
