Give the Gift of Camp

If you register your child anytime between November 24th and December 22nd, a special gift wrapped package will be delivered to your child by a "camp elf." The gift includes a carabiner with personalized welcome letter from Mike Murphy, Camp Director. It's perfect for under the tree! Merry Christmas from your friends at YMCA Camp Leif Ericson!

Year-Round Programs!

Throughout the year, YMCA Camp Leif Ericson offers a variety of programs for children, adults and families.

Activities include Birthday Parties, Horseback Riding, Vacation Camps, Outdoor Education, Teambuilding, Weddings, Corporate Outings and Special Events.

Changing Lives for 97 years

Since 1920, our Sioux Falls Family YMCA camps have provided generations of campers with a safe, meaningful and life-changing outdoor camping experience. Children return year after year to enjoy our beautiful camp property, nestled along the forested shoreline of the Big Sioux River. While camp is close to home in the heart of Sioux Falls, it feels like a world away. Although our facilities and location are terrific, we know that it’s our counselors that ultimately make the camp experience so special.

Ga Ga League

For the past several summers, our 3,000+ YMCA Camp Leif Ericson campers have ranked Ga Ga as one of their favorite activities. In fact, the demand for Ga Ga has been so strong that we hold a Ga Ga Invitational Tournament each April, an exclusive event for returning campers. We also own three professional pits, the first of their kind in the region. With all of the excitement around this incredible sport, we are thrilled to offer a Ga Ga league at our new YMCA Youth Performance Center!
