“Send a Kid to Camp” Event
It’s easy to help!
Our Annual Giving Campaign “Send a Kid to Camp” program provides scholarships for underserved, underprivileged, deserving kids to attend summer camp and participate in valuable outdoor education opportunities. Many children never have the opportunity to experience the magic of camp and it is our goal to ensure that every child has this opportunity. Camp helps kids to do better in school, lessening the detrimental effects of summer learning loss and builds invaluable self-confidence.
In 2016 YMCA Camp Weaver’s helped:
- 350 children attend day and overnight camp sessions
- 240 children participated in financial literacy camp
- 165 Camp Corral children enjoyed a week of camp. These are children of disabled, wounded or fallen military parents
