Kids to Y Camp

YMCA Kids to Y Camp

There is no better way to get out kids outside and away from screens than through summer camp. According to the American Camping Association, just one week of summer camp increases self-confidence and communication skills, promotes positive relationship-building skills, reduces summer learning loss and cultivates an appreciation of the great outdoors.

The Y’s vision is to provide and inclusive YMCA camp experience and send 726 kids to camp through thanks to your support. At camp, children develop valuable life skills through disguised learning, free play, and interaction with youth of varying backgrounds, as well as build self-esteem.

Your gift the YMCA Camp Manitou-Lin provides the opportunity for kids in our community who cannot afford a camp experience to create lifelong memories. Donations from $300-$500 can support scholarships for one week of summer day camp while $600-$1,000 of support can make it possible for kids to attend overnight camp.
