Parents Say Hello to Confidence

Thank you for your interest in Lake Stockwell Day Camp. We consider ourselves lucky to be able to partner with parents to inspire kids to discover who they are and what they can achieve.

Open Houses

Our Open Houses for 2016 Summer are over, but please contact our camp directors with any questions about camp this summer. These are great opportunities to meet our staff, tour our facility and enjoy some of our activities. As an added bonus, first-time campers will receive a $50 discount for attending and registering for camp at any of our Open Houses!


Your child’s safety and health is our primary concern. We have on-staff nurses who reside on the property and an on-call doctor. We have lifeguards on duty for all aquatic activities and staff members trained in CPR/First Aid. In the unlikely event of an emergency, we are located a short distance from major hospitals.


We believe it is important for you to share in your child’s experiences so we have many ways to keep in touch with camp. We maintain a summer blog, a Facebook page, a Twitter feed, publish a day camp newsletter and we email a picture video at the conclusion of every day camp week.


Campers enjoy their own space amidst nearly 800 acres of cedar lakes and woodlands. Waterfronts, a playground, an air-conditioned dining hall and program areas, such as archery, air riflery, sand volleyball courts, a sports field and much more are reserved exclusively for our day campers.

Food Service

A traditional camp lunch is served family style in our dining hall. We believe that eating as a family group is beneficial to youngsters as they learn to share, learn to communicate and everyone participates in helping either serve the meal or assists in cleaning up. Our healthy and delicious menu includes a main course, a salad bar and vegetarian options. Our friendly, professional food service staff will work to accommodate special dietary needs when informed ahead of time. An afternoon snack is also served. Lunch and snack are included in the pricing for day camp.  Click here to ask Jason, our Food Service Director, a question.

We are proud to have our camps accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA). This means that we care enough to undergo a thorough (up to 300 standards) review of our operation- from staff qualifications and training to emergency management. ACA collaborates with experts from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross and other youth-serving agencies to ensure that current practices at our camp reflect the most up-to-date, research-based best practices in camp operation.

Financial Assistance

The YMCA Camps strive to serve all people, regardless of their ability to pay. Our camps offer many possible discounts, including sibling, multiple session and Military service discounts. In the event you need additional assistance, scholarships are available. Please contact our Main Office for additional information and download our Financial Aid Application here.
