The Y. So Much More.

ALL BECAUSE OF CAMP KIDS ARE…

CONFIDENT. SELF-RELIANT. COURAGEOUS. OPTIMISTIC. CHEERFUL. 

Summer is a time for kids to get up, get out and discover. Thanks to YMCA to summer camp experiences, local youth are able to do all that and more! They’re discovering the world around them, participating in hands-on activities, and learning about them selves.

But for some kids, exposure to activities that stimulate the body and mind ends with the school year. Without physical activity and enrichment programs, children are prone to being idle and experience learning loss. YMCA summer camps fill that void and puts parents’ minds at ease by providing a safe and fun environment for growing kids.

Nearly 130,000 DC-area youth lived below the poverty line in 2015, but only 4,892 kids received support for scholarships from the Y to attend overnight and day camps. With your support, there is so much more we can do to help other deserving kids.

Please make your gift today to make a child’s camp dreams come true.
