What we're all about...

YMCA Camp Kresge is located in the beautiful Pocono Mountains in White Haven, PA. Our facility features a 25-acre private lake, 1,100 total acres, and specialized program areas. Activities include archery, archery tag, arts & crafts, boating, court & field sports, climbing tower, high & low ropes courses, photography, swimming, and so much more! At Camp Kresge, we believe in the importance of building friendships, gaining confidence, and reconnecting with nature. We offer a Day Camp program for campers ages 6-15, as well as several Overnight Camp sessions for campers ages 7-16. For teen campers, we have Leader-in-Training and Counselor-in-Training programs as well. We are accredited by the American Camp Association.
"Here are kindled the fires of lasting friendship."
