Youth Incorporated

Purchase a holiday wreath from Lynch Creek and support Camp YI. Thank you!

Youth Incorporated's mission is to advance the mental, moral and physical development of boys and girls. We have provided opportunities for youth to accomplish this mission at our summer camp, Camp Y.I.,  located in LaVergne, TN since 1945. Our Inline Hockey program began in 1999 and we currently have rinks in Bellevue and LaVergne. 

Camp Y.I. is situated on a peninsula overlooking Percy Priest Lake. Our 175 acres provides an outdoor playground for  boys and girls ages 7-14 (Overnight) and ages 6-10 (Day Campers). Since 1945 we have been "Building Leaders for Tomorrow" by providing opportunities to build self-confidence and indpendence in a beautiful and fun outdoor setting. 

 Summer camp is a traditional experience where we build a community of friendship and respect during the one week or two sessions. Campers can participate in a variety of activities such as horseback riding, lake activities-waterskiing, kneeboarding, tubing, canoeing,  swimming pool, several ropes courses, a climbing tower, arts and crafts, camp crafts-outdoor living skills, archery, bb guns and night time activities. 

 Each year just after Memorial Day, the staff gathers at Camp to attend several days of training to prepare for the upcoming season. Once campers arrive, our days are filled with learning new skills, meeting new friends, rekindling friendships, enjoying the outdoors and building a community atmosphere that is unplugged from the usual daily routine.

We hope to see you this summer!

Letter from the Camp Director

Dear Parents and Campers,

On a hot summer day in June of 1967, an eight-year-old little girl arrived by bus at Camp Y.I..

Earlier that day, 100 or more girls ages 8-15 had met at the Sears parking lot in downtown Nashville. Once the trunks were packed and several hugs and kisses later, they waved goodbye to their somewhat reluctant parents and envious younger siblings.
