Give the gift of camp

Do you know a child who could benefit from a scholarship to camp?

Every day, the Y works to ensure that everyone has the opporutnity to learn, grow and thrive. Through the generous support of donors, we provide scholarship assistance to give every kid the chance to experience camp.

Please consider making a tax-deductible charitable contribution to our Annual Campaign to help send a child to camp. When you give to the Y, you strengthen your community.
