Summertime at the YMCA is the most magical time of the year and a wonderful opportunity to see our mission at work throughout the community. Each summer, we have the privilege of welcoming more than 1,200 kids to YMCA summer day camp locations in Joliet, Plainfield, Morris, Romeoville, and Bolingbrook. YMCA summer camps offer an action-packed, adventure-filled experience full of swimming, field trips, and outdoor exploration. Kids of all ages learn new skills, build self-confidence, develop new friendships, and make memories that will last a lifetime.
At the Y, we remain dedicated to providing a summer camp experience for all children, but we can’t do it alone. Last summer, nearly half of the children who attended our summer camp program received assistance through the YMCA’s financial assistance program. This was made possible thanks to precious funds donated to the YMCA by generous donors like you. To ensure that the Y’s mission will continue to thrive and help those children in our community who need it most, we need your support more than ever.
We invite you to invest in the kids in our community by making a charitable contribution to the YMCA’s 2023 Send a Kid to Camp Campaign, which will run April 24-May 12. Your gift, in any amount, will help to ensure that every child has the opportunity to benefit from an engaging and impactful summer camp experience at the YMCA.
Donate today by visiting your local YMCA branch, making a tax-deductible donation online, or by texting YMCACAMP to 243725. Message and data rates may apply.
As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, all gifts to the YMCA are tax-deductible.
