Retreat Center Testimonials

Retreats offer a special opportunity to celebrate, connect, reflect and gain a fresh perspective. Few settings are as rewarding as YMCA Camp Letts, and we’re dedicated to making your experience unforgettable. Here’s what others are saying about us!

Our Boy Scout Troop tent-camped at Camp Letts for the weekend and were quite pleased with the facilities. We were going to the Naval Academy for a tour and Camp Letts was very close by. We enjoyed the athletic areas, fire ring area and general views of the water front. We will come again and plan on staying on site the whole time. There are lots of things to do there. The Camp is very convenient to Baltimore, where we were coming from.

Gail, Ricky, Euan and all,

Thank you for a great year. After going to Camp Letts 6 TIMES over the past few months, I just want to say that it truly has been a pleasure working with you and your staff. The facilities, the service, the activities, and the genuine investment in the success of our retreats have all contributed to a successful year for us at Campus Ministry. While we will not be returning again before the end of the semester, I know that we look forward to coming back next year!

We have traveled to Camp Letts for University of Baltimore student leadership retreats for the last two years. Our Spring Forward retreat, held at the end of May, is an opportunity for students to meet, form bonds, learn about leadership, and think about their leadership role at UB in the coming academic year. Camp Letts is the ideal retreat location for us, as it’s located in an idyllic and serene setting. It’s hard to believe it’s only an hour from our campus in Midtown Baltimore! Camp Letts has everything we need for a productive and successful retreat: team building and recreational activities, and plenty of meeting space. But what makes Camp Letts special is the people who work there. Camp Letts’ dedicated staff, including Retreat Center Coordinator Gail Rivera and Program Director Ricky Langton, are top notch. They are easy to work with and responsive to our needs. Gail works with us every step of the way to ensure we have planned appropriately for our retreat, and have all of the resources we might need. Ricky and the team initiatives staff are outstanding facilitators. The staff ensure that all of the team building activities are safe, challenging, and engaging. They take time to reflect with our students and process what they’ve learned, which is important for our work with college students. As a planner, I’m grateful to the staff of Camp Letts for their dedication and attention to detail. I would highly recommend Camp Letts to any of my colleagues!
