Founded in 1918, YMCA Camp Wapsie is the Camp of the Cedar Rapids and Iowa City areas. Wapsie’s coed summer camp programs serve boys and girls ages 6-18 in our summer resident and day camp program. We serve campers of all ages through our year-round retreats and group programming, youth and family programs.
Camp Wapsie is the place to help young people build the character values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. With our deep tradition in camping, we strive to instill these underlying principles into each camper during their time at camp. Here at YMCA Camp Wapsie, we are: For Youth Development, For Healthy Living, and For Social Development.
Camp has just under gone a data base change that will impact member login and registration. When logging in for the first time you will need to select the second option “I am a new member and do not know my credentials”. DO NOT select the 3rd option. The system will prompt you to set up a new password.
Camp Wapsie is unable to offer community swimming lessons this summer.
We hope to be able to offer them next summer. Please check out the Marion and HGN branches for swimming lessons.
Designed for women and the young ladies in their lives; this is a terrific opportunity for mothers to come to Camp Wapsie and share in the magic of camp with your camper. The weekend allows for that special time together with plenty to do, from archery, crafts, to climbing the Hope Tango Tower!
