Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility

25195_371840473230_7214451_n.jpgFounded in 1918, YMCA Camp Wapsie is the Camp of the Cedar Rapids and Iowa City areas. Wapsie's coed summer camp programs serve boys and girls ages 6-18 in our summer resident and day camp program. We serve campers of all ages through our year-round retreats, youth and family programs.

Camp Wapsie is the place to help young people build the character values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.  With our deep tradition in camping, we strive to instill these underlying principles into each camper during their time at camp. Here at YMCA Camp Wapsie, we are for youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.
