Camp Fund

YMCA Camps value young people. Our focus is on developing the potential of every camper, and building strong character consistent with YMCA values. YMCA Camps encourage friendship, learning, and healthy child development, while providing positive role models to support children.

Your gift to the Camp Fund supports the development, operations, and involvement of youth within outdoor and camping environment, helping us ensure that all children have the opportunity to attend camp, where they can make new friends, have fun, and discover their full potential.

The Camp Fund, with the Glen Baechler Fund will provide for future generations of YMCA Campers by raising $1,000,000 plus. We are very pleased to report that the Camp Fund, currently boasts over $512,000 of donations, with a significant amount of funds donated by our Alumni, their families and their friends.

With support from camp people like you, we will continue to build on this substantial base, with every gift amount making a difference in the lives of children and youth.


We hope you will consider giving to the Camp Fund, so your gift will continue to give to our camps,
year after year after year.
