Ways to Donate to Camp Menogyn
Annual Giving Program
Each year during the annual campaign, we ask for your support to keep a long-standing tradition of exceptional camp experiences alive and well. Your donation helps campers—more than 627 in 2016—develop character, build skills, learn from nature and make lasting friends and memories.
In 2016, 61 camperships were provided and an additional 82 campers came with nonprofit groups at discounted rates made possible by donors. In all $151,000 was given out in financial assistance for campers. Many of our scholarship recipients have never been on a family vacation, paddled a canoe or slept out beneath the stars. 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
