YMCA Camp Silver Creek
Celebrating 75 years of summer camp!
SEE THE CAMP SILVER CREEK STORY BELOW
YMCA Camp Silver Creek is located 20 miles east of Salem in Silver Falls State Park. Our camp was built by the Civilian Conservation Corp and is over 75 years old!
Camp Silver Creek consists of our Dining Hall, Recreation Hall, Arts and Crafts Lodge, heated pool, a small lake, and an archery range. Along with this we have our own creek to play in and creek-walk, The Void for fort-building, miles of hiking trails, and a horse arena.We have four unique living units: Bear Creek, Trickle Falls, Hemlock, and Hillside. Each unit consists of six cabins, two leader cabins and a unit lodge.
All summer, from the early-morning Polar Bear Club to campfire, campers are engaged in activities that are fun, challenging, and memorable. For decades, Camp Silver Creek has been shaping the lives of campers through the offering of traditional camp programs that build a healthy body, mind and spirit!
