The revitalization project for Camp Glenburn is underway! Our reputation as a safe, fun, skill-based camp has taken 91 years to build and we want to ensure we can continue to provide amazing outdoor experiences for future generations. Check out the video below and see just how special camp is. 

YMCA camping is a long-term investment in our children and our community. For nearly 90 years Camp Glenburn has provided a journey of self-discovery, connections with others, and an appreciation for the natural environment to thousands of people from Saint John and around the world.

The only overnight Y camp in New Brunswick has remained popular because it instils self-confidence, promotes learning in an outdoor setting and offers participants an opportunity to grow. Camp Glenburn enriches lives and helps to create memories that last a lifetime.

Investing in the revitalization of Camp Glenburn is critical to the future of the camp. In order to continue to impact lives and provide unique experiences, the camp needs upgrades and new construction. Future generations are counting on us.

The revitalized Camp Glenburn will:

  • Be recognized as the premier center for overnight camping experiences and leadership development in New Brunswick.
  • Offer values-based, innovative and high-quality summer overnight camping programs for children and youth; outdoor education; and adult education and retreat programs.
  • Serve 2,000 people annually from across the province and beyond.

Above all, it will increase the ability to serve more children and youth throughout New Brunswick and internationally, now and into the future.
