Help send kids to camp – buy a tree or volunteer

It’s time for a great annual tradition—the Y has been selling Christmas trees since 1938. In addition to getting a beautiful tree for your home, your purchase helps fund the scholarship program that sends kids to Y camps.

When you shop a Y Christmas tree lot during normal hours, volunteers will:

  • Help you pick out a tree
  • Cut off the bottom of the tree trunk and/or remove lower branches
  • Assist with carrying and tying the tree to your vehicle
