YMCA Camp Harrison, a branch of Greater Charlotte, is committed to the spiritual and moral growth of our campers. The mission of the YMCA of Greater Charlotte is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. All YMCA of Greater Charlotte programs promote character building around five key traits:
Additionally, we hope that each camper will:
- Learn about the Bible
- Grow in faith and Christian character
- Establish the priorities of prayer and Christian fellowship
- Understand what it means to have a relationship with God and eternal life through His Son, Jesus Christ, and be given the opportunity to establish this relationship.
"Morning Watch" before breakfast and "Vespers" after the evening program highlight our Christian theme and bring the camp community together to honor God and Country. Bible stories, Scripture verses, songs, testimonies, the Pledge of Allegiance, and Taps are some of the tools used in building and strengthening these foundations. Campers are encouraged and assisted in setting and succeeding in personal challenges and goals. Our hope is that each individual's camp experience holds not only excitement, fun and adventure for the now but memories to last a lifetime.
