One of the greatest experiences that a child can have is a week’s adventure at Bear Valley YMCA Camp.
One of the greatest gifts that you can give to a child is a gift to the Y’s Kid’s to Camp Campaign to make that week at YMCA Camp a reality.
Here is why the Kids to Camp Campaign is so important:
This summer, many of the kids in Shawn’s neighborhood will spend their days unsupervised, learning the wrong lessons – the lessons of the street. Shawn’s mother prefers that he spend his days at YMCA summer camp, learning the lessons of positive values and friendship.
For more than 70 years, Bear Valley Y Camp has provided scholarships to send kids like Shawn from disadvantaged neighborhoods to YMCA summer camp.Camp leaves a lifelong impression on kids, many of whom experience the beauty and fun of the great outdoors for the first time. Campers form strong and lasting relationships with mentors and friends. They meet children from other cultures and backgrounds. They learn new skills including teamwork and self-discipline. They have fun in a safe and nurturing environment and build self-esteem.
Shawn’s mother cannot afford to send him to camp. Will you consider making a contribution to the YMCA Kids to Camp Campaign that will help make camp a reality for Shawn and many other children in our region?
The Bear Valley Y Camp experience provides lessons that last a lifetime, and is an experience that every child should have, regardless of their ability to pay.
Please take a moment to help send kids to YMCA camp by making a gift online. We guarantee that it will be a great investment in a child’s future.
