Explore New Horizons at Camp Harrison
Located between Lenoir and North Wilkesboro in North Carolina, YMCA Camp Harrison at Herring Ridge offers exciting opportunities for all who come through our gates. Camp Harrison is a co-ed camp for kids ages 6-16 set on over 2,000 acres of land, streams, and trails just 90 miles from Charlotte in the mountains of North Carolina.
At Camp Harrison, campers choose from a broad range of challenge-by-choice activities and are empowered to create adventures that fit their unique interests. Kids develop lifelong friendships by embracing authenticity and accepting their differences. Our campers have a great time enjoying God’s creation, building relationships and challenging themselves as they learn new skills.
As a Christian organization, Camp Harrison helps each camper understand what it means to have a relationship with Christ. Morning watch, vespers services and nightly cabin devotions highlight our Christian values through the study of God’s Word, worship songs, testimonies and more. In our small community, campers receive individual attention from the positive Christian role models who serve as our counselors and staff.
