Welcome to YMCA Camp Classen
At Camp Classen in Davis, OK, campers make new friends, learn new skills, develop character and have an adventure. Campers become a community as they both learn how to be more independent and to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities.
Camping teaches self-reliance, a love for nature and the outdoors and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership. At Camp Classen, you get all of this wrapped up in the fun of campfires, canoeing, archery, GaGa Ball, horseback riding, talent shows, group games and meaningful relationships.
