Welcome to the place where you can be yourself and explore new horizons! YMCA Camp Harrison is a co-ed resident overnight camp for kids 6-16 located in the lush, serene mountains of North Carolina, between Lenoir and North Wilkesboro and 90 miles from Charlotte, NC. Our big backyard offers 2,000 acres of woods, streams, and trails around private Lake Broyhill. Camp Harrison is the perfect retreat for kids to explore nature and make new friends and in a fun, safe environment.
Campers choose from an exciting roster of activities, spending over half of their waking hours outdoors. They spend mornings trying their hand at archery, paintball, ropes course, sports or crafts and the afternoons on the lakefront kayaking, canoeing, water zip line, waterskiing and more. Add on experiences like horseback riding, sporting clays and wake sports really personalize their adventures.
Faith-based programming is also an important part of our camp experience. Our "Morning Watch" before breakfast and "Vespers" after the evening program highlight our Christian values through Bible stories, Scripture verses, songs, testimonies and more.
Our well-trained and energetic staff provides a safe, secure and inclusive environment. We help kids invest in each other by encouraging authenticity and accepting differences. At YMCA Camp Harrison, kids build healthy mind, body and spirit, make new friends and lots of happy memories. Join us at Camp Harrison this summer!
