Warner-Tully Camp History

The History of Warner-Tully is a long and storied one. In 1955, Anderson-Tully Lumber Company gifted 108 acres near Port Gibson, MS to the Vicksburg Y. Soon after this donation, C.L. Warner left the Vicksburg Y a substantial bequest in order to establish a summer residential camp on that property. Construction would begin soon after, and Warner-Tully Memorial YMCA Camp would open its gates in the summer of 1960. Many things have changed since Warner-Tully first opened in 1960. Thousands of children from Mississippi and Louisiana have spent fun and exciting summers at camp while creating many many unforgettable memories. In 2010, Warner-Tully celebrated 50 years of consecutive service. Facilities have improved and program activities have evolved, but our commitment to a strong Christian mission and a rich tradition of safe and exciting outdoor activities with outstanding staff leadership has remained.
