YMCA Camp Chandler is the residential camp of the Montgomery YMCA. It's large number of activities, well trained staff, beautiful lake front location and more than 80 years of tradition make it one of the finest camp in the south.
Since 1928 YMCA Camp Chandler has provided youth with the opportunity to build meaningful relationships, develop new skills, and create memories that last a lifetime. Camp Chandler’s highly dedicated, enthusiastic, and caring staff not only ensure that campers have a fun and safe camping experience, but they also strive to build character, make a difference, and change the lives of each and every camper that comes through the gate. Camp Chandler adheres to the philosophy that the resident camp setting offers a twenty-four hour living experience which can provide opportunities for campers and staff to develop more fully as individuals. Campers attend chapel twice a day at either the scenic outdoor chapel overlooking the lake or the brand new indoor chapel. We believe that campers should have a growth experience that involves an acceptance of social responsibility, a sense of moral values, and an awareness of spiritual values. Whether you are looking for individual, small group, or camp-wide fun, we definitely have something for you! Campers are grouped according to age and gender. They live in cabins with up to 13 other campers and at least 2 counselors. Friendships grow as they live, share meals, laugh, and play together during a full week of fun! Campers are given the opportunity to participate in more than 20 different activities like horseback riding, skiing, archery, sailing, the high ropes course, and more.
