About Us


We have been proudly providing a wide variety of camping programs for children, teens and adults since 1941. Programs available include: resident summer camp, outdoor education, weekend campouts for adventure guides & scouts, family programs and much more

In 1939, Mr. and Mrs. M.H. MacLean of Evanston, Illinois made a generous gift to the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago to create a summer camp for boys in memory of their son John Bartlett MacLean. YMCA Camp MacLean opened in the summer of 1941 and is located in beautiful SE Wisconsin one mile east of the city of Burlington. Throughout the years camp has served tens of thousands of youth. Our programs have grown from a summer camp for boys to a year round camping center serving youth, families and organizations. Over 14,000 people a year enjoy our camping programs.

Our mission is to provide all of our campers and guests with a safe, quality experience. Whether you are looking for a summer camp for your child, a place to conduct outdoor education for your school or a camping location for your group retreat we pledge our complete support. YMCA Camp MacLean is accredited by the American Camp Association.
