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.
