Welcome to YMCA Camp Kirkwood

For more than 50 years, YMCA Camp Kirkwood has welcomed campers, providing a chance to escape the distraction of modern life and experience God’s breath-taking natural world through exploration and adventure. At YMCA Camp Kirkwood, the Y is able to create a one-of-a-kind opportunity for kids to build character, develop self-confidence and encourage self expression.

Located just outside Wilmington NC, YMCA Camp Kirkwood sits on 195 acres of pristine woodlands along with a 10 acre lake for water sports, hiking trails for nature study, a swimming pool for cooling off, and many other camp elements to meet our campers needs. Our camp philosophy is to provide a safe, fun, magical and educational experience for all guests and children through the demonstration of our core values -Honesty, Caring, Respect, and Responsibility- and practicing a “Kids and Guests first” philosophy.
