About Us | YMCA Camp Red Feather

YMCA Camp Red Feather, located on the campus of Virginia Wesleyan University came to be through a partnership between the YMCA of South Hampton Roads and Virginia Wesleyan University. Since opening, we've been serving hundreds of children each year through outdoor camp activities that include archery, canoeing, climbing, arts & crafts and more.

YMCA Camp Red Feather is led by Caleb Cooper, District Vice President of the Blocker Norfolk Family YMCA and Jeanette Breitenbucher, our Senior Youth Program Director, who also oversees YMCA before and after-school programs in Norfolk Public Schools.

This first-class facility includes:

  • Alpine Tower
  • Amphitheater
  • Archery Range
  • Athletic Fields
  • Boating
  • Challenge Course
  • Fishing Dock
  • Gaga Pit
  • Gymnasium
  • Hiking Trails
  • Indoor Pool
  • Low Ropes Course
  • Nature Trail
  • Outdoor Education Center
  • Riflery
  • Swim Lessons

In 2017, YMCA Camp Red Feather added the Frank Blocker Youth Center, which provides indoor and open-air space to campers as well as an outdoor amphitheater. Our goal is to help nurture the potential of every child and teen we serve, and to teach them that they can achieve.
