Ways to Donate to Camp Ihduhapi

Annual Giving Program

Each year, we ask for your support to keep a long-standing tradition of exceptional camp experiences alive and well. Your donation helps campers—more than 200 in 2016—develop character, build skills, learn from nature and make lasting friends and memories.

In 2017, 200 qualifying campers received financial assistance totaling over $80,000. Many of our scholarship recipients have never been on a family vacation, paddled a canoe or ridden a horse. Your donation makes these life-changing experiences possible for all children, regardless of their family’s income.

With your help, the YMCA can:

  • Offer camp scholarships so that no one is turned away due to financial need
  • Purchase essential program equipment and supplies
  • Provide quality training programs for camp staff
