Send a Kid to Camp

Want to give a child an experience they’ll never forget? Consider a donation to the YMCA. Whether your gift is $25 or $250, you can help a child in need attend YMCA Adventure Camp for a week.

Each summer, hundreds of youth attend day camp at the Y to experience the outdoors, make friends, and learn values that last a lifetime. This summer, you can help make memories to last a lifetime. 



Each day the YMCA works with our neighbors to ensure everyone, regardless of age, income or background has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Thanks to generous donors, we are able to fulfill this mission through low cost programs and direct financial assistance for families in need.
