Summer Family Camps

Family Camp is a great opportunity for quality time in a comfortable, natural setting—for any family unit. Kids and adults of all ages will play and relax with staff, who are focused on service and building relationships to take care of your needs. Days fill up with fun and healthy activities such as archery, arts & crafts, campfire, challenge course elements, group games, and rock climbing.

Our beautiful cabins make for a comfortable yet wooded setting to enjoy the natural surroundings. Guests will need to bring their own bedding and toiletries. Meals are included along with activities for the whole family. 

YMCA Camp Collins offers 130 acres of hiking trails, beautiful Sandy River views and scenic landscapes, a perfect place for you to enjoy time in nature, away from the distractions of home. Self-guided and staff-led activities await!

Cabin Assignments

Camp Collins is dedicated to building healthy relationships and communities. One way we build community is by sharing living spaces; pairing families together in cabins. Most cabins sleep 14 people. We assign 2-4 families per cabin, depending on family size. You are welcome to request to be paired with another family, or in a particular village, and we will do our best to meet your request. Because of the large number of families we serve, we cannot meet all requests. We hope you will meet your new cabin mates with an open mind and welcoming spirit!
