It all began in 1906, when YMCA Boys Work Director Albert M. Chesley pitched camp on five acres along the South River, initiating what is now the oldest organized resident camp in the Washington area. The camp moved in 1922 to its present location, thanks to the generosity of John Cowen Letts, and today youngsters from the Baltimore-Washington area and beyond flock to this secure and exciting environment to kindle friendships and master new skills — all the while learning more about themselves, their peers and the world in which they live.Our 219-acre peninsula has miles of wooded trails for hiking, horseback riding, and nature discovery; vast green fields for a variety of team sports; three tennis courts; and a crystal clear, olympic-size swimming pool for instruction and fun. Our professional equipment includes more than 40 sailboats and small craft; certified nets, balls, racquets, hoops and targets for various sports; and much more to enjoy a broad selection of aquatic, land-based and waterfront activities, including.The YMCA seeks to make its services available to all persons regardless of ability to pay.  Partial tuition assistance made possible thanks to YMCA contributors. We seek to recruit highly skilled, qualified, and accomplished individuals  whose warmth, consideration and companionship will enhance a camper's experience. The permanent administrative staff of YMCA Camp Letts has specialized in the field of recreation with an emphasis on youth development. Our diverse staff last year consisted of counselors from 15 states and 14 countries. Honesty, caring, respect and responsibility  the YMCA's cornerstone character values  are modeled by staff members who are chosen for their maturity, skill, and ability to lead youth in a manner consistent with the goals of the YMCA.Our counselors are trained to build these character values through play and learning.
