A tradition at YMCA Camp Pepin since 1935, resident camps are the core of our summer program. Although the world has greatly changed since YMCA Camp Pepin first began operating, it's nice to know that today's youth can still enjoy some of the same things about summer camp that their grandparents enjoyed many years ago.

NEW: Two-Week Camp

Entering grades 7-10 

Session Dates: July 23 - August 4

Twice the camp is twice the fun! For campers who can’t get enough of Camp Pepin, we are now offering a two-week session. Each week will run just like a regular week of resident camp, but two-week campers will be able to pick a new set of classes and activities for their second week. Over the weekend, they will participate in an off-site campout to have a genuine outdoor experience. Two-week campers will be able to participate in and experience more activities, build stronger friendships, and create long-lasting memories during their time here at Camp Pepin.
