Send a Kid to Camp

Gray Stallworth, CEO

 

Henry first moved to Greenwood when his Dad’s job transferred his family here in May of 2012.  He had a difficult time making friends at first, but now he looks forward to Y Summer Day Camp every year. “Every day we do something fun outside and I have made new friends too.”  Every summer kids like Henry come to our day camp programs to explore the outdoors, build confidence, develop skills and make lasting friendships and memories.

 

1 in 5 children this summer at YMCA Camp Greenwood will receive financial assistance in order to attend. It’s essentially a part of their lives because a struggling, single working parent or a family without the means to provide summer care must have adequate child care services, and during the summer an additional strain is placed on a family. During the school year, a struggling parent might have some options around work hours, a family member or others who can supervise a child during a few hours after school. However, the long summer days (out of school) changes all of that.

 

Each of the families who receive financial assistance for summer day camp have applied for and qualified for some reduced rate. They have also accepted the responsibility to pay an agreed upon portion of the summer fees. A parent who receives financial assistance understands that responsibility and our staff work closely with them over the summer.

 

We have an extraordinary opportunity to ensure a brighter future for Greenwood—but we must take action today, and only your support will make it possible. Will you support one or more day campers this summer? You can send a kid to camp for as little as $40. A gift of $200 will support one camper for half the summer!

 

Every gift makes a difference. Everyone has a role to play. Together, we can achieve so much more.
