YMCA CAMP SILVER CREEK (OVERNIGHT)
YMCA Camp Silver Creek is located 20 miles east of Salem in the largest state park in Oregon: Silver Falls State Park. It is a traditional residence camp; campers arrive on Sunday and are matched with other campers of the same age in a cabin. Throughout the week, campers are taught to learn a new skill, make a new friend and have fun so by the time they leave on Saturday, they already want to come back next year.
Camp Silver Creek consists of our Dining Hall, Recreation Hall, Arts and Crafts Lodge, heated pool, “The Lake”, archery range, and four unique living units; Bear Creek, Trickle Falls, Hemlock, and Hillside. Each unit consists of six cabins, two leader cabins and a unit lodge.
All summer, from the early-morning Polar Bear Club to campfire, campers are engaged in activities that are fun, challenging, and memorable. For decades, Camp Silver Creek has been shaping the lives of young men and women through the offering of traditional camp programs that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. Come to camp and see what everyone is talking about!
