Boothbay Region YMCA Camp K Fund
Camp K is a vital program for children providing opportunities to learn, grow, thrive, and build meaningful relationships. Every child deserves that feeling-- a sense of belonging, respect, and the knowledge that they have a safe space to let their creativity run free. Camp K programs have helped shape lives and have solidified our resolve to share these opportunities with the next generation.
Like all of the programs at the YMCA, Y camps are available to all, regardless of a family's ability to pay. Every year, over 60% of our campers receive a range of financial assistance. The Y is able to provide financial aid through donations to this important and impactful program.
As team leaders, former counselors, grandparents, and parents of campers, we can attest to the benefits of a thriving Camp K program and are grateful for the generosity from the community.
As we begin enrolling children for camp this coming summer, we are asking you to support the Camp K Fund in order to know how much financial aid will be available to working families and those in need; our priority is that no child is turned away for an inability to pay.
Last year, we awarded 315 camper weeks and an additional 238 camper weeks for our Y-Arts summer camp.
$1,845 sends a child to camp for the entire summer!
$820 underwrites one month of scholarship for one child.
$600 sponsors two weeks of arts and crafts camp.
$400 sponsors one week of specialty Adventure Camp for one child.
$205 sponsors Explorer Camp for one 5-6 year-old child.
Every gift makes an impact, please consider a gift today!
