What makes Camp Kirkwood especially unique is its location and ability to provide your child with a number of summer camp activities that are usually exclusive to residential camps. Your campers will enjoy activities like zip lines, archery, canoeing, swimming, low and high ropes courses, arts and crafts, hiking, bb guns and more! This year we are providing our campers with pick up locations so that everyone can join in the fun this summer!
For more than 50 years, Camp Kirkwood has welcomed campers, giving them a chance to escape the distraction of modern life and experience God’s breath-taking natural world through exploration and adventure. Camp Kirkwood is located just outside of Watha, North Carolina and is managed by the Y. At 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.
