Camp Fitch YMCA - A Great Camp On A Great Lake

Making Kids Better, Forever!

March 15, 2024

At Camp Fitch YMCA, our Summer Camp provides kids ages 6–17 with a holistically safe community where they discover friendship and achievement. Kids feel like they belong here among our carefully vetted, highly committed, and caring staff. Our gorgeous and well-maintained site on the shore of Lake Erie has been the setting for our intentional culture of putting Christian values into practice for over a century. A transformative Fitch experience is among the most important a child can have to develop independence and self-confidence.

Cost should never be the reason a child cannot attend any of our programs, so please contact us if you would like financial assistance to attend.

We have several experiences for your kids in our Summer Camp program depending on age and interest: each experience is described below. Cast off the bowlines and come dream, discover, and explore at Camp Fitch!


Our flagship program is the classic sleepaway summer camp experience where kids have many opportunities to explore, learn, and grow. With programs like sailing, rock climbing, visual and performing arts, hiking, archery, mountain biking, outdoor cooking, and more - your child will be able to find new adventures as well as lifelong friendships.


Get your teenager involved in our leadership development experiences to cultivate essential skills such as teamwork, empathy, responsibility, and a service-oriented mindset. Our Leader In Training (LIT) program, tailored for rising sophomores in high school, spans one week and emphasizes team building and communication skills. Meanwhile, our Counselor In Training (CIT) program, designed for rising juniors in high school, extends over two weeks and offers young leaders direct mentoring and experience in mentoring and working with youth.
