Mill Hollow Outdoor Education Center

For more than 60 years, Mill Hollow Outdoor Education Center has given youth summer educational opportunities in the national forest in the Uinta Mountains. This year, the YMCA is proud to continue this tradition in a conventional summer camp setting for ages 8-14. 

Mill Hollow is approximately one-hour from Salt Lake City, in the Wasatch-Cache National Forest. Mill Hollow is an overnight camp with cabin groups of 22-26 boys or girls. Mill Hollow facilities include cabins, a lodge, basketball court, volleyball court, fossil bed, hiking trails, two rec rooms, bird blind, and a large meadow great for running and group games. Campers come for a half or full week camp experience focused on connecting them with the great outdoors.

All camp activities are centered on the YMCA values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility and the goal of having FUN.
