Camp Scholarships


Will you help us make memories come to life this summer? At Camp Knickerbocker we foster the essential core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility. Many of our staff members grew up in the very programs we still offer to the youth of the Boothbay Region. We are able to speak from experience when we say children will gain personal growth opportunities and friendships that will last a lifetime. Whether their passions involve the waterfront, the field, the page, or the stage, Camp Knickerbocker has something for everyone. 

The benefits of camp are numerous. Each summer, we watch young people develop a greater affinity for nature and the outdoors, increase confidence by taking risks in a safe and supportive environment, form new friendships, enhance boating and swimming skills, and explore the arts and humanities. 

To ensure that every child has the opportunity to experience the benefits of camp, the Boothbay Region YMCA relies on the generosity of our community to raise funds to help working families send their children to camp. Through creating outstanding programs and making sure they are accessible to all, the YMCA helps shape and guide the leaders of tomorrow. Your gift to the 2019 Knickerbocker Fund does more than help children attend our camp- it helps pave the way for young people to grow into strong members of our community.

We thank you for your continued support of the youth of the Boothbay Peninsula and look forward to another summer filled with laughter, love, and growth at Camp Knickerbocker.
