About The Event

This Family Camp is SOLD OUT. Our next Family Camp will be in October.

Come join us for a weekend of family fun at YMCA Camp Benson in Mount Carroll, Illinois in the Spring. Family Camp is an opportunity for your family to grow closer together by participating in a wide range of camp activities and exploring the wonderful woods here at Camp Benson. Moms, dads, children, grandparents, or any other family member can attend. All are welcome.

Sleep in your own cabin or invite another family to share it with you. All meals are provided and the best part is that we do the dishes. Camp staff will lead a wide range of activities. Take a trip down the zip line or push yourself to new heights on our climbing wall. Go for a relaxing walk within the nature trails. Make a candle for mom or something else special in Creative Arts. Construct a s’more and sing campfire songs as the sun sets. These are just some of the activities you can do during Spring Family Camp.

Featuring: Zip Line, Nature Hikes, the Twilight Zone, Archery, Candle Making, Gaga Ball and More! (Activities vary year to year.)

Check in is always on Friday from 6-8 PM with programming wrapping up late Sunday morning.


Cost: $30 per family member. Cost includes meals, activities and lodging.

To reserve a cabin for just your family, you must register a minimum of 4 people. If your family is smaller than four people you can reserve your own cabin by paying for 4 people or sharing with another family. Please contact us if you have any questions about this.
