Group Retreats


Plan your next field trip, conference or retreat with YMCA Camp Duncan.

School Groups - Outdoor Environmental Education

Camp Duncan is much more than a place to take students for a field trip. It is a special place that gives students  hands-on experience with nature through enriching activities in the outdoors.

Classrooms come to life on our 300 acres of forest trails, meadowlands and 65-acre lake. We welcome school groups and other learning institutions throughout the year. Our unique academic curriculum includes classes in art, science, and social studies. Outdoor education is more than learning, it is living within our natural environment.


Retreats and Conferences

YMCA Camp Duncan serves over 30,000 customers each year.  Some of these groups include:  Boy/Girl Scouts, corporations, sports teams, universities, scrap bookers, Adventure Guides, church retreats, and many more.
