I was a camper 20 years ago.. Absolutely loved the camp & now my son goes every year like I did & he feels just as excited as I used to get going.. So much fun excitement & adventure with good friends!
YMCA Camp Pine Crest provides a fun program for those who want to gain independence, interact with nature, make friends with new people, and develop leadership skills. Overnight camping trips are a staple of Pine Crest's programs. Pine Crest has a history of over 100 years of excellence in camping and offers traditional overnight camp experiences, day camps and family camps.
It’s been operating continually for more than a century, making Pine Crest one of the oldest continuous youth programs in North America. The YMCA has many camps, of course, and has also played a considerable role in developing what camp is and what it can do. Many of the kinds of programs that we associate with summer camp were developed in Y settings, so Pine Crest has a pedigree that goes well beyond its age. The program remains very traditional, and tripping is an important part of what the camp offers. The activities are based around growing skills as much as they are confidence, esteem, and cooperation. The staff is dedicated, and largely made up of people who themselves have grown up within the Y camping programs, either at Pine Crest or elsewhere. The setting is pretty much as good as it gets, nestled in Muskoka, an area rightly celebrated for its natural beauty. It’s gorgeous. Leadership programs for youth 13 to 16 are a particular draw.
