Location: Just two hours southwest of Kansas City on Highway 50 and an hour and a half northeast of Wichita, Camp Wood YMCA is in the heart of the Flint Hills.  We’re situated on 630 acres of native prairie grassland encompassing a 19-acre lake, several wooded acres, and a breathtaking view of the Flint Hills.

Staffing: Our facilities are staffed with college-age students who have been part of our summer camp experience.  They are highly trained, caring individuals who know the value of the camping experience.

Meals: Camp Wood YMCA offers a full-service meal plan in our dining hall where all you have to do is pick the menu and enjoy the food– camp does all the cooking and clean up.  Want to do it yourself?  Rent the Jones Lodge kitchen for everything you’ll need (including the kitchen sink).  You can go potluck or cook over an open fire.

The BARN at Pioneer Bluffs

The 1915 barn at Pioneer Bluffs historic ranch has been restored to its original splendor. Fresh paint and repairs, along with new windows, make the exterior of the century-old barn look new. Accessibility to the cathedral-like hay loft has created an ideal space for dances, music, Prairie Talks, weddings, and other community events.
Gone are the days when most family life revolved around a country barn. But that rural way of life, and its unique story, is preserved at Pioneer Bluffs near Matfield Green.
And just in case you have space for a cute quote:
“The hay loft!” wrote Irene Rogler Palenske in her memories of growing up at Pioneer Bluffs in the early 1900s. “A haven for secrets and for stealing sparrow eggs and for stories told by my cousin Windy. We sat in the cupola before we dropped from the rafters into the new mown hay – dusty, scratchy, and buoyant – then scrambled back up the ladder to jump again.”

Additional services are available

  • Meals catered
  • Live music
  • Additional table/chair rental
  • Group tours
  • Themed programs
  • Historic performance
