  • We know that when you serve, it is not JUST you serving. It’s your entire family. We want to honor your service by giving you a home-away-from-home lake house to get away to for you and your entire family. Come relax at Camp Grady Spruce and make the absolute most of the time that you spend together. Call Nevin for more information and to book your stay for our exclusive Military Family Camping Weekend August 22nd-24th, 2014.

  • YMCA Camp Grady Spruce chooses one weekend each spring and each fall to devote to families that have children with disabilities, the most common including Aspergers, Autism and Down Syndrome. Our goal is to pull families out of their usual world and create an environment where your entire family can enjoy the outdoors, each other, and even other families with similar interests and lifestyles. Families are welcome to invite whoever they want. This is a family event, siblings, and all are invited! Children 4 & under are free, and the cost is only $73 per person for the entire weekend! Contact Nevin or fill out our Cabin Request form for more information!
