Rotary’s YMCA Camp Tillicum

YMCA Campers become confident leaders

Rotary’s YMCA Camp Tillicum programs are fun, safe and rewarding with lots of choices for every camper’s interest. Campers participate in organized games, sports, crafts and outdoor themed activities. Camp Tillicum is ideal for 6 to 12 year olds. Throughout each week, campers get to experience canoeing, archery and time exploring the beautiful natural environment. Campers will also have the opportunity to swim at our beautiful sandy waterfront.

We believe that all children should experience the magic of day camp no matter their financial circumstance and there are payment options available for families during these difficult times.

Please note that only the themed camps are covered by the District Social Services Administration Boards (DSSAB). Families seeking financial assistance may complete a Campership Application. Those who qualify will receive financial assistance funded by the YMCA’s Strong Kids Campaign.
