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.
Camper Harrison kids are able to choose from a broad range of challenge-by-choice activities which empower them to create adventures which fit with their unique interests and personalities. They also have opportunities to build new friendships and invest in one another by encouraging authenticity and accepting 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 also provides each camper an opportunity to 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. Campers also benefit in our small community by receiving individual attention from the positive Christian role models who serve as our counselors and staff.
