Gathering Pines

New Location, Same Great Camp

Day Camp Kici Yapi has found a new home in Lakeville and taken a new name — Day Camp Gathering Pines!

At Day Camp Gathering Pines, kids learn new skills and build self-esteem while practicing the YMCA’s core values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility, and equity. Kici Yapi is also well known for our outstanding Horse Camp, with over 50 horses and year-round riding.

And just like all YMCA of the North adventure centers, we strive to build upon the Y's core values as part of our Camp Culture and Community Commitment.
