The Athens Y Camp for Boys was founded in 1898 by Walter T. Forbes. Mr. Forbes also founded Camp Chattooga for Girls in 1933 as a sister camp to AYC. The camps are owned by the Athens YMCA and are accredited by the American Camp Association.
The mission of the Athens Y Camps is to provide a safe atmosphere for young men and women to aide them in maturing and growing as they learn and excel in various physical activities and social interaction, all based on Christian principles.
