Hey you!  Yeah, you with the inquisitive mind, compassionate heart, and perennial dirt tan.  I want to tell you about a place called Lake Wenatchee YMCA Camp, located near Leavenworth, WA.  Where do I begin?  I could start with the  many activity offerings, extensive website ( or our commitment to transforming lives, empowering youth and changing our world.  I could dabble in the theoretical underpinnings (servant minded leaders, nonviolent communication, intentional speech) or the demographics (450+ campers, 40 staff, cats, dog, deer, the occasional moose).  I could list the available seasonal positions in any combination.  But that’s only the beginning, why stop there?  Contact us at  or show your interest and apply today by CLICKING HERE.  Look forward to hearing from you!

What we believe...

We believe in the transformative power of camp - Simply put, Camp changes lives.  Campers and staff develop lifelong friendships and memories here every summer.

We believe that the normal is absurd and that the absurd is normal - Some may look at  our camp traditions as absurd.  Turn on the news and you see examples of how the world treats each other.  We think that is absurd!  At camp it is normal to treat each other with love, respect, caring, honesty and responsibility...and, to sing songs with a mouth full of marshmallows.  Camp is an example of how the world could/should be...and we're proud of this!

We believe that everyone belongs at Y-Camp - Every person has value and deserves to be loved and accepted for who they are.  We often describe ourselves as a "camp family" as there is a bond formed here that is unique. The fact that we get to be on this lake, with these people is what sets Lake Wenatchee YMCA Camp apart.


We transform lives!

We empower youth!

We change the world!

What to expect at camp

Cabin Leaders live in cabins with 5-8 campers, and spend much of their day with that group. Throughout each one-week session, cabin leaders act as friends, teachers, and role models for campers and have unbelievable opportunities to have a positive impact on campers’ lives. During their time as program staff, cabin leaders will assist with cabins where possible, as well as running one of the program areas in camp, which may include life-guarding, archery, or working in the kitchen. All staff members work six days each week, with a break from Friday evening until Sunday morning. Each day staff will have scheduled time off and our goal is to give each person 2 hours each day.
