“The camp is my sanctuary. I love walking my dogs in there. The trails are great and the scenes are stunning, especially in the fall.”

Just think … 800 Acres to Roam!

YMCA of the Pines offers the opportunity for the local community to share nearly 800 acres of open space, hiking/biking/running trails, summer time swimming and community programs. Bring the family and enjoy all that camp has to offer.

Due to COVID, bathrooms remain closed and our office hours have been modified, Monday – Friday, 9 am to 3 pm. Therefore, please plan ahead before coming to camp.

We ask that all members sign up for Membership Updates by texting @1303stokes to 81010. This is the best and quickest way to stay up-to-date.

Thank you, we appreciate you patience during these unprecedented times.
