Welcome to YMCA Camp Abe Lincoln

YMCA Camp Abe Lincoln is an overnight and day camp where we put children in intentional situations that will positively impact their lives. Campers will have the opportunity to paddle in a canoe, shoot bows and arrows and ride a horse; but more importantly, they will learn self-confidence and independence while experiencing community, friendship, and spiritual growth.

A premier summer camp located just outside the Quad Cities, Camp Abe Lincoln serves children from the midwest and in some cases, across the country and world.  So whether you are from Bettendorf or Moline, Chicago or New York, Camp Abe Lincoln is waiting for you.

We change lives every day. Thank you for taking the time to consider sending your child to camp. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to call or email us. We look forward to meeting you.

Military Kids Camp
MKC is a specialty Camp for children with parents in the service. It is a great opportunity to build a community for military children. We have funding this year and are pleased to offer this Camp again, free of charge, from Sunday, June 28 through Friday, July 3. Space is limited, so we are currently accepting applications here!


Zip Line Adventures
We're also VERY excited to announce that in our 91st year, Camp Abe Lincoln will be able to offer awesome views from our bluffs of the Mississippi River from a new Zip Line Tour
, thanks to a generous grant from Bechtel Trusts and Foundation.  (Keep your fingers crossed!  We're really hoping it will be open in June!)
