Y CAMP AT LAKE NEBAGAMON ADOPT A TREE CAMPAIGN

Upgrading and expanding The Y Camp at Lake Nebagamon will help us better serve more campers and ensure a strong future. We've made progress toward our goals, but we need your support to continue making strides in reaching our master plan.

CAMP MASTER PLAN

In August 2019, The Y Camp celebrated our 100 Year Camp Anniversary! It was during this celebration that we unveiled our master plan that includes:

  • Open Air Pavilion
  • Improved Bathroom Facilities
  • Benson Lodge Improvements
  • Boardwalk & Improved Trail System

COMPLETED IMPROVEMENTS

  • New access road off S. Lake Blvd
  • New Swimming & Fishing Docks
  • Cabin improvements interior & exterior such as roofs, plumbing, electrical & paint

Our Master Plan included a Forest Management Plan which began in the fall of 2019 by cutting older growth Poplar, Jack Pine, Red, and White Pine. The sale of those trees generated $22,000 which was used to replant trees, mill logs for use in the open-air pavilion and other plantings in the future. 

We planted 1500 trees and are looking for 1500 supporters to ADOPT A TREE. 

New driveway off of S. Lake Blvd. Project generously funded by an anonymous donor.
