Henry Coe Gathering Place Construction Underway

The Henry Coe Gathering Place construction is in full swing here at YMCA Camp Ingersoll.  When completed, it will have the capacity to seat the entire camp all at once to share in the magical spirit of summer camp and deepen a sense of unity and togetherness.

Morning and afternoon flag ceremonies as well as Family Nights have been integral parts of YMCA Camp Ingersoll’s camping program.  Currently, all of our campers, families and staff sit on the ground on a steep hill.  Construction of the amphitheater will allow YMCA Camp Ingersoll to continue to provide the high quality program that our families come to expect in our program.  The structure will provide camp with an appropriate space to gather as one complete unit off the ground, out of the sun, while providing a stage sing songs, perform skits, and participate in traditional ceremonies.
