Camp Speers-Eljabar YMCA
Camp Speers-Eljabar was founded in 1948 by north-central New Jersey YMCAs to provide the first inter-racial overnight camp in the YMCA system.
The original site consisted of 310 acres and was purchased in 1948. The purpose was to provide an adventure in intercultural Christian living offering a short term experience for all boys of the middle and lower economic group. In 1951, it was formally named Camp James M. Speers after a conscientious philanthropist and distinguished member of the New York City business community as well as community leader in Montclair, New Jersey.
The mission of Camp Speers-Eljabar YMCA is to serve a diverse community and to build spirit, mind, and body through a unique combination of Summer Camp, Outdoor Education, Conference and Local Community Programs.Our goal is that each camper and program participant leaves our camp a better person than when they arrived, and campers are set on the path to do the right things and contribute to a better world as they continue to grow.
