YMCA Camp Letts Open House

May 4 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Newsweek Names YMCA Camp Letts
One of America’s Best Summer Camps!

Open House on Saturday, May 4th “lets” everyone see for themselves!
This just in – On May 18th, a dozen families of D.C. scholarship recipients will visit to learn more about the camp experience.

Newsweek just named YMCA Camp Letts one of the best summer camps in America!

With both day camp and overnight camps, the 100+ year-old YMCA Camp Letts in Edgewater, Md. attracts campers and counselors from around the world to its 219-acre peninsula off the Chesapeake Bay, overlooking 3 islands and a 2,600-acre preserve.

YMCA Camp Letts is hosting an Open House event on Saturday, May 4th from Noon-2PM to give potential campers and their families a chance to check out the facilities for themselves!

And on May 18th, the YMCA’s Youth & Family Servies team will send a bus full of the families of our camp scholarship recipients out to see the site. Many of these families are new to the country, and have only seen an American summercamp on TV. So they’re visiting to build familarity with the location, activities, and staff so they’ll know their children will stay safe and have fun.

Newsweek’s winners were ranked based on a survey of 30,000 parents conducted in 2023 and 2024 and nearly 700,000 social media reviews on Google and Facebook. Camps were rated on criteria like the selection of offered activities, accessibility, staff-to-children ratio, and camp safety.

With activities such as archery, canoeing, horseback riding, hiking, and an aerial adventure course, YMCA Camp Letts creates memories and friendships that last a lifetime.

Newsweek partnered with data researcher Plant-A Insights Group to create the list. This is Newsweek’s second annual ranking of summer camps.
