To belong, achieve, and build relationships

Y overnight camps have a way of transforming kids - it takes them away from their normal routine, and creates a safe environment where they can overcome challenges like mastering their backstroke or hitting their first bullseye. With the great outdoors as a backdrop, our staff designs activities that aim to teach valuable life lessons, like persistence in completing a difficult task, solving problems creatively, and working together as a group to achieve a common goal.

Welcome to YMCA Camp Soles!

At Camp, we do what is right. We are committed to building a safe, inclusive and welcoming environment for every one where we treat one another with respect and dignity. They also learn about being a good sport, independence and the value of good decision making. 

For more than 60 years, Camp T. Frank Soles has provided high quality and affordable overnight, family camp, and retreat programs.  Located in the Laurel Highlands of southwestern Pennsylvania, our 263 acre facility is recognized by many as one of the most beautiful camps in North America. Campers have the opportunity to try their hand at a variety of activities including swimming, Gaga, arts and crafts, rock climbing, archery, zip lining, and much, much more.

While camp activities are an important part of the summer camp experience, they are actually the tools we use to teach campers how to build meaningful friendships, create lifelong memories, and develop a stronger character. Our focus is to instill the core values of CaringHonestyRespect, and Responsibility in each and every camper.
