A sleepaway summer camp where kids can dare, discover, and dream. 

Welcome to YMCA Camp Watia

Sun-kissed mountain peaks and crisp starry nights. Forests filled with homemade forts and magic (and the occasional gnome!). The happy song-filled chaos of dinner followed by quiet moments around the campfire. YMCA Camp Watia is a North Carolina sleepaway summer camp where kids can unplug from devices and connect with the outdoors, new friends, and caring counselors. Fun, meaningful activities are carefully planned to help them explore new interests and build confidence. Campers learn what they can achieve with courage, perseverance, and support from those around them.
