HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CAMP CANN-EDI-ON! We’re celebrating 90 years of camping fun. Our camp is nestled in the horseshoe of the Conewago Creek and is part of the long tradition of camping at YWCA York.

This illustration shows you our plans for a renovated Rec Hall. While enjoying our ideas for a Camp at Home experience for your family, please consider making a birthday donation to support our first project: replacing the stairs on the back of the Rec Hall. Our campers gather here each morning and renters take their family reunion and wedding photos on the stairs.

The Camp Cann-Edi-On program provides an opportunity to connect with friends and make new ones while enjoying the benefits of the outdoors! Our young people are ready to spend time together having fun! The program fee includes breakfast, lunch and afternoon snacks each day. Make a summer to remember by participating in archery, kayaking, swimming, sports, arts and crafts, TONS of STEM activities, trail hiking, river walker, camp fire activities and fort building.

Cost includes breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack, and weekly trips to Camp Cann-Edi-On.
