YMCA Camp Cha-La-Kee is a member of the Heart of the Valley YMCA family and incorporates wholesome outdoor fun, opportunities to build friendships and life-changing character development for ALL our guests. We are a day camp for children ages 7-12 and an overnight camp for children ages 8 to 17. YMCA Camp Cha-La-Kee is available as a retreat center for groups of all ages and sizes during the months of May, August, September and October.
Activities on our beautiful 61-acre campus, located on the shores of Lake Guntersville, include canoeing, horseback riding, giant swing, high ropes teambuilding, 400ft zip line, archery, boating, tubing, swimming, arts & crafts, performance (drama), socials, “The Blob” water trampoline, and much, much more.
We believe in the benefits of small group cabins, so we limit our summer cabin capacities to eight campers and two counselors. During YMCA Summer Camp, a healthcare professional is onsite 24 hours a day to administer first aid and dispense camper medication.
