Catch the Spirit!

Join the YMCA Camp Cosby Alumni Association!

The Cosby Spirit is made up of many things: shaving cream skits, pranks, rag ceremonies, songs at G.R.A.C.E. Chapel, lifetime memories, friendships, overcoming personal obstacles and so much more! The Cosby spirit is something that from the outside looking in you can’t understand and from the inside looking out you can’t explain. If you are reading this article, it’s safe to say that you had no idea what was in store for your life when you drove past that “Camp Cosby” sign for the first time. From courage to overcome our fears, to the confidence to meet diverse people from all over the world, to growth from our mistakes, Camp Cosby is a place that has significantly impacted our lives by shaping who we are today.

What is the YMCA Camp Cosby Alumni Association? It is an opportunity. An opportunity to reconnect with old friends. An opportunity to relive the glory days. An opportunity to remain a lifelong camper. An opportunity to give back and to be a part of something greater. Finally, it is an opportunity to keep the Camp Cosby we all know and love thriving for future generations of Cosby campers and counselors.

The YMCA Camp Cosby Alumni Association is an inclusive organization whose membership is open to: former campers, counselors, parents, staff, volunteers, guests, visitors, family and friends of camp. It is the goal of the YMCA Camp Cosby Alumni Association to: keep in touch with you and your success, keep you connected with camp happenings and to engage you in a way that is mutually beneficial to both you and camp. If you haven’t already joined the YMCA Camp Cosby Alumni Association I encourage you to do so today.

YMCA Camp Cosby Archives Site

We have created a site for ALL Cosby Historical documents for our Alumni to access whenever you would like to bring back all the memories of Camp Cosby. This site is a work in progress. You will find an abundance of pictures and documents, but we want more. As you may notice once you start exploring, there are many gaps. We’d love to fill these. If you have any pictures or documents you’d like to share with us, we would love to add these to our archive folders. There are two ways you can share:
