YMCA Summer Day Camp offers an exciting and engaging adventure where young people can make new friends while having a whole lot of fun! At Y camp, kids laugh, learn, explore and grow, while creating memories and friendships that last a lifetime. And providing a safe and meaningful camp experience would not be possible without the support of local partners like the Community Foundation of Grundy County.
The Foundation awarded a $18,965 grant from the Sanford Teen Fund, which was established to help youth and teens in Grundy County, with a focus on supporting mental health. Funding has helped the Morris Community YMCA operate summer day camp activities, as well as summer youth sports programs, and will continue to support health and wellness services and programming for kids and teens this fall.
Through its commitment to youth development, the Morris Community YMCA nurtures the potential of every child. To pledge your support for these programs through a charitable gift to the Mission Strong Fund, click here.
