About Becket-Chimney Corners YMCA
As an independent YMCA Camp and Conference Center, Becket-Chimney Corners YMCA (BCCYMCA) is unique in that it offers a four-week rustic residential camp experience. Camp Becket was established as a boys’ camp in 1903. Henry and Ina Gibson, early Directors at Camp Becket, helped to establish Chimney Corners Camp for girls in 1931, which operated as a private camp until its acquisition in 1972. BCCYMCA also operates Travel and Service Programs that offer teens an opportunity to experience new cultures and engage in community service internationally and domestically. BCCYMCA’s Outdoor Center offers year-round outdoor experiential learning programs for colleges, schools, youth and adult groups. Through their programming, BCCYMCA strives to create a supportive and inclusive environment that encourages character development and confidence building.
