Camp Clay


Hey, I am Clint, Camp Clay Facilitator, welcome to the Camp Clay page of our website! I am so excited to share with you the changes our Camp Clay facility has recently made. We really are one of the “hidden jewels” of Van Wert County and we are excited to help spread the word through this site and make it less “hidden.”

As a branch of the Y, we work together in many ventures, such as summer camps, swimming opportunities and rentals. Other things that are just out here at Camp Clay include the team building initiatives (high and low ropes, climbing wall, etc); shelter house and pond—with public swimming 7 days per week.  Camp Clay offers ACA certified canoe and kayak instruction, along with The Nature Center,  self-guided nature trail, a reconstructed 1837 cabin and tipi rentals.

We have a great facility for church gatherings, school functions, FHA, 4-H programs, group retreats, family reunions, corporate events, sports teams, weddings and so much MORE! The sky is the limit at Camp Clay…we can design indivdualized programming to meet most any needs.

Please take a moment to view the video attached to this portion of the site to see for yourselves some of the things we have to offer. Please feel free to contact me via email at I am excited to hear from you soon to help you custom-fit your Camp Clay experience!
