Glenn Carpenter Centre

The YMCA Glenn Carpenter Centre is a hidden gem: a forested hideaway with a sparkling private lake just minutes from Saint John’s city centre. The site includes a rustic lakefront Lodge, a Picnic Shelter and beautiful Ashburn Lake – all within 220 acres of the Acadian forest. During the summer months, the Glenn Carpenter Centre is buzzing with activity from our popular day camps. Here, youth escape to connect with nature in the great outdoors and enjoy canoeing, paddleboarding, water trampoline, swimming, hiking, recreational sports, and so much more.

COMING SOON: Summer Day Camp Program Catalogue — stay tuned!
