Space for All of Your Needs

YMCA Camp Harrison sits on 2000 acres of Brushy Mountain forests and streams surrounding pristine Lake Broyhill in Boomer, NC. Needless to say, many exciting adventures await your students at YMCA Camp Harrison.

The Lake

Our greatest classroom is private Lake Broyhill and the adjacent wetland area. Contributing to our ongoing research here, you collect and analyze macro-invertebrates plus learn how to test the turbidity, PH, rate of flow, and temperature of Big Warrior Creek.

The Land

Our forest trails provide a path for discovery around each bend with many living and non-living components of the forest. Recreation fields provide ample space for group activities as well as a place to recreate with your students.


Large and small groups enjoy our 8000 square foot pavilion for a variety of events. Its design features an open-air concept to allow for natural light while shielding participants from the elements. Wood construction, exposed beams and a vaulted ceiling mimic the mountain surroundings to provide an ideal backdrop for team building, meetings and more. Amenities include: basketball goal, volleyball court, small stage, lights, sound, av equipment as well as seating for 200. Contact us to request additional programming, seating for up to 500, food services and more.
