Camp Makes a Difference, for All of Us!
Camp has been a part of my life since i was 9 years old and homesick at North Woods Camp. Since then, camp has taught me a million new skills and introduced me to the best friends I've ever had. Whether personally or professionally, I can confidently say that I wouldn't be who I am today without camp!
This opportunity is something I will always cherish, and I joined the Board of Directors to help ensure that kids can have those experiences for years to come. The YMCA is an amazing organization and I'm proud to volunteer and fundraise for such an awesome cause.
In 2018, your donations helped send 98 kids with financial need to camp, including:
- 55 METCO Students
- 46 YMCA of Greater Boston Branch Youth
- 18 Roxbury Tennant Housing Youth
- 16 Sandy Island Families
- 20 International Campers
- 11 DCF Referred Campers
- 9 East Boston YMCA Youth
- 6 Portsmouth Police Department Youth
- 3 NW/PVC Family Camp Families
- 3 Homeless Campership Fund Youth
- 2 Boston Police Department Youth
- 2 Southborough Family Services Youth
- 2 Big Sister Program Youth
100% of every dollar donated to the YMCA’s annual campaign stays local (in Boston and New Hampshire). Your kind gift will build a better us by ensuring that the Y’s doors are open to all.
