Special Events


Find out about Camp Duncan's special events.

YMCA Camp Duncan and its Board of Directors host special events each year to benefit children with medical and financial needs. Each year the number of families looking for financial assistance for their children to attend camp increases.  Our goal is to provide quality camp experiences for all children and families in need regardless of medical or financial need. 

In addition to traditional day and resident camp programs, Camp Duncan is a summer camp home for several medical camps that provide programs for children who are burn survivors, sexual abuse survivors, have diabetes, asthma, physical disabilities, mental disabilities, spinal bifida, kidney disease, Tourette syndrome, or have lost a family member.
