Camp K is a vital summer 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. 

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 parents, grandparents, campers, board members, former counselors and staff, we can attest to the benefits of a thriving Camp K program and are grateful for the generosity from the community. 

As we enroll children for camp this coming summer, we are asking the community to support the Camp K Fund in order to know how much financial aid will be available to working families and those in need; we are committed to welcoming every child and not turning anyone 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.

  • $2,040 sends a child to camp for the entire summer!
  • $1,040 underwrites one month of scholarship for one child
  • $540 sponsors two weeks of Specialty Camp
  • $440 sponsors one week of Adventure Camp
  • $240 pays for two weeks of a Y-Arts Junior Musical
