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 7 to 12 year olds. Small groups enhance personal growth and allow for maximum supervision. 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.
