Family Camp at Boy Lake

We are excited to offer five sessions of family camp at a new beautiful location in summer 2017. After the success of our YMCA family camp program at the Gunflint Lodge last summer, we are pleased to offer a more expansive program for our growing community of family campers! We also have heard feedback that a location closer to the Twin Cities would be preferred and thus we have leased a location on Boy Lake, near Remer, MN.

This location is approximately 45 minutes north of Brainerd in the popular central lakes area for a total of about 3 ½ hours from the Twin Cities. We will have exclusive use of the camp for our family camp program! The lake is quiet, clean and has excellent recreation and fishing opportunities. Both family cabins and tent sites will be available during these five sessions. Highlights of the site include easily accessible waterfront activities like boating and swimming, a large playfield, a gaga pit, basketball court, arts and crafts site, full dining hall, and a large screened-in gathering area for large group activities!

Join our YMCA Family Camp team at Boy Lake this summer and enjoy the magic of family camp at a new location!
