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!

Thank you in advance for supporting Camp K this year; your generosity ensures that a new generation of campers will experience the life changing experience of camp.
