YMCA Camp St. Croix 2019

Celebrating 110 Years in Camping

We realize that for many of you, your connection to Camp St. Croix is tied to the people you encountered and the experiences you shared. Whether staff, volunteer, friend, parent, or cabin mate, no matter your connection, people and shared experiences are what keep our mission alive and relevant. As we enter our 110th year, we are creating a meaningful gathering space for all to intentionally honor those dear to your Camp St. Croix experience. We are asking you to consider joining us in this project by purchasing a Legacy Brick. For $110, you will create a customizable, engraved, 4”x8” brick, laying the foundation of a space for you and future generations to gather and share your Croix story. With your help, we can lastingly celebrate the history and memories of all those influenced by the mission of Dear ol’ Camp St. Croix. Bricks will be sold throughout the festivities of our 110th year for the $110 rate. After 2019, bricks will be sold on an ongoing basis to incorporate the every growing number impacted by the people and mission of Camp St. Croix.

Please go to https://donationbricks.com/campstcroix following your payment to engrave your brick!

Common Questions

How do I pay for my brick?

The preferred method is to order your brick online using the form above where you have the ability to use a credit card or you can mail a check to:

I don't have a computer. Can you mail a form to me?

We prefer to have the orders placed directly through the website, however, we can provide a paper copy to via mail, or, we can accept your order over the phone. Please contact us at 612-465-0560 if you prefer a mail order.

I'd like to put a symbol on the brick, is that possible?
