Spring Outing

There's nothing like Spring Outing! Held at YMCA Camp Sea Gull and YMCA Camp Seafarer in Arapahoe, NC (right outside of New Bern), you'll spend a weekend in cabins with your Crew. You'll have a great time whether you're digging for sharks teeth or going down the zip line. There is something for everyone!
