YMCA Day Camp Tracy was founded on McGrath Pond in Oakland, Maine in 1960 by Richard Hawkes, along with then Executive Director of the Waterville Area Y, George Keller & Lester Jolovitz.

 This beautiful 32 acre campus located McGrath Pond's waterfront offers a full range of diverse programs and every year we create more programming to meet the growing demands of our community!

2005 we added a 4 Season Lodge, a 55 foot climbing tower and a full ropes course. 

2007 Cal Ripken, Jr. dedicated Maine's Fenway, a 2/3rd scale replica of Fenway Park.

2008 our enhancements included a multi-use soccer field and 3 residential cabins.

2013 we added parking for 40 vehicles. 

2014 a 4th residential cabin was added and Mini Fenway was completely turfed.

2016 our Lodge was completely renovated and upgraded.
