YMCA Camp Falcona Announcement

The YMCA has always applied the highest quality standards to Camp Falcona programs and staffing to ensure valuable and engaging summer experiences for hundreds of campers.

However, despite our best efforts to create new opportunities and a new model for the camp, the current financial model for Camp Falcona is no longer sustainable. For that reason, the decision has been made to permanently close Camp Falcona, effective immediately.

Current Falcona families can be rest assured that every possible option is being explored to ensure Falcona campers can access our other high quality camp programs.

We are sensitive to the concerns of current Falcona families, and while this change will be challenging, our ultimate goal is to serve even more families with exceptional camp programs and facilities. We can do this by ensuring the strength and long-term financial health of our entire camping program.

For additional information, please refer to our FAQ sheet. We thank you for your ongoing support during this time of change and are excited to welcome Camp Falcona families to our many other high quality programs in the region.
