When you think of summertime as a child, what comes to mind? Camp fires? Capture the flag? Canoeing? Kum Bah Yah? Whether you’ve had memories you’ll never forget or you always wondered what it’d be like to go to camp, summer is home to some of the most positive, powerful adventures. Share your favorite memory here.

      Many kids will never know these memories without your help.

Thousands of local children miss out on the growth and adventure of summer camp simply for financial reasons. These same kids are at risk of unhealthy and unsafe behavior when the final school bell rings.For 130 summers, kids of all kinds have held YCamp as one of their most positive developmental memories. Last year alone, 18,857 kids were served in our day and overnight camp programs, 2,897 of which were afforded this experience through financial assistance.Through over 100 camp programs, campers have enriching summers filled with healthy friendships, core values, confidence and self-discovery. Yet there are far too many kids whose families simply were never able to afford it.

Sending a kid to YCamp is a small way to make a big difference. Your donation of $250+ will give one child the memory of a lifetime in a week-long YCamp.

Donate today so they too will someday remember this.

The Y. So Much More.
