Camp Clay


Welcome to the Camp Clay page of our website! The YMCA has recently made many exciting changes to our Camp Clay facility. 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, public swimming, and group rentals.  Camp Clay activities also include team building initiatives (high and low ropes, climbing wall, etc); shelter house and pond—with public swimming 7 days per week.   In addition to the Nature Center, a self-guided nature trail &  a reconstructed 1837 cabin available for rent.

Camp Clay is 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 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 the YMCA at 419.238.0443  or Camp Clay Director, Kevin Morrison at 269.838.9789 to help you custom fit your Camp Clay experience!

    Hi there
    Just a quick question was inquiring if you had to have a Y membership to come enjoy camp clay?
    Thank you

      No, you do not have to have a membership to enjoy camp clay. However our season is ending and we are only open Saturdays and Sundays from 12-6pm until September 6th.
