Each year during our annual fundraiser, we ask for your support to keep an 88-year tradition of exceptional camp experiences alive and well. Your donation helps campers—more than 1,005 in 2017—develop character, build skills, learn from nature and make lasting friends and memories.
In 2017, 100 qualifying campers received financial assistance totaling over $98,000. 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

We can process your gift online or by check, deferred billing, monthly credit card billing, EFT and donation of securities. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. We are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. Your gift is fully tax-deductible.
