Y Camps believe in conservation of natural resources and stewardship of the land we use. Practicing “Leave No Trace” principals is an integral part of our camping programs.

The seven principles our camps support and seek to instill in our campers and staff are:

  1. Plan ahead and prepare
  2. Travel and camp on durable surfaces
  3. Dispose of waste properly
  4. Leave what you find
  5. Minimize campfire impact
  6. Respect wildlife
  7. Be considerate of other visitors
