For over 90 years, YMCA Camp Y-Owasco of the Auburn YMCA-WEIU has been providing safe, fun-filled summer adventures on the east shore of beautiful Owasco Lake in the central New York Finger Lakes region. We feature traditional day camp programs for ages 6-15, traditional resident camp ( sleepaway camp ) programs for ages 8-15, and leadership programs for ages 15-17 all within a short 45-minute drive from Syracuse. Please explore our website and see how we provide outstanding camp programming with physical and emotional safety in a positive, natural environment that's perfect for making friends, learning a thing or two, and having the best summer yet!

At YMCA Camp Y-Owasco, we believe that the future of our world is determined by the experiences that children have today. We help kids grow into well-rounded individuals by helping them build friendships and leadership, interacting with positive role models, participate in a close-knit community, and experience safe and healthy opportunities to learn new skills and grow as people.
