In the early twentieth-century, the American Summer Camp Movement developed to remedy urban ills by giving city children, especially traditionally-sheltered young girls, the chance to develop self-reliance in natural spaces. Fresno’s youth benefited from camps run by the YWCA and the YMCA, as well as the Boy and Girl Scouts of America. The YWCA had a summer camp as early as 1922. They moved to Camp Asilomonte at Huntington Lake in 1928 and on to Camp Mar-Y-Mac at Dinkey Creek near the YMCA camp in 1952.
