Overnight Camps

The Resident Camp program at YMCA Camp Abe Lincoln is a world where imagination comes alive!  Campers spend a magical week participating in their choice of daily activities while making friends and creating lasting memories on Camp Abe Lincoln’s beautiful 250 acres. Activities include canoeing, archery, alpine tower, zip lines, nature, arts and crafts, sports, swimming, music, and many more.
Our progressive programs allow for new skill orientation each year a camper returns to camp with specialized activities for each age group.  Camp Abe Lincoln’s unique and exciting evening activities are bursting with energy.  Games such as Capture the Flag, Swim Under the Lights, Camp Carnival, Ga-Ga, and Wild and Crazy Kids make fantasy a reality, while building camper teamwork and leadership skills.  No week at Camp Abe Lincoln is complete without the traditional campfires, songs, night hikes, and Camp Outs.

Traditional Resident Camp    Ages 8-14      

Our traditional resident camp program is what we are best known for in the area.  We provide resident camp programming for campers ages 8-14.  Campers stay in cabins with other campers of the same gender and similar age range.  During the week, campers will have the opportunity to create their own adventure.  There are individual activity periods where campers can choose which activities they really want to focus on; archery, arts and crafts, canoes, etc., and participate in those every day.  There are also activities that the cabin will engage in as a group; arena rides, volleyball games, star gazing, etc.  In the evening, the entire camp community will gather for a group activity.  Campfires, wet and wild activities, and night swim in our newly renovated pool are just a few.
Your child’s safety is our first, second and third concern.  We will make sure your child has an experience in adventure and character development without risking the physical or emotional safety of your child. Give your child the experience to grow with a week of resident camp.

Starter Camp     Ages 6-8    

Not sure if your younger camper is quite old enough for an overnight experience? Starter camp is the perfect trial period. Your little camper will stay for a half week of camp, Sunday through Tuesday, and stay in a cabin with campers just like themselves.  This is a week just for our youngest campers as they will be the only ones on the camp grounds.  All of the camp activities will be focused on our little campers.  Give it a try and see if your camper is going to be ready for the full week.
