Richmond Youth Camp is nestled among the trees on the shores of Richmond Lake. The camp was specially designed to be used for youth groups as a retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The Camp has a formal lodge made out of native stone. It is 42' x 80' with 14 foot sidewalls and an open beamed ceiling. In the center is a large meeting room that will easily hold up to 100 people. On both ends of the meeting room is a large fireplace. One is wood burning, the other is gas burning. The lodge also has a full service kitchen including a large stove and refrigerator. It has a full selection of pots, pans and cooking utensils. On the other end of the lodge there are Men and Women's restrooms. The lodge has three furnaces that will keep it toasty warm even during the coldest winter day.

The camp has three dorms for housing campers during your stay. Each dorm will sleep 36 campers. They also feature a walkout deck on the second floor for a scenic view of the lake. Each dorm has a shower and toilets. The dorms are also heated during the cold weather months.

The Infirmary is located across the path from the dorms. It has three sleeping quarters in it and a full bathroom. It can be used to house camp counselors.

On the grounds of the camp there is a basketball court, tennis court, volley ball court, two softball fields, a swimming area with a large sand beach, playgrounds and a picnic area complete with shelter.
