Lt. J Wesley Van Dorn Memorial Scholarship Fund
YMCA Camp Weaver is honored to establish a scholarship in memory of American Hero, Lt. J. Wesley Van Dorn, United States Navy who passed away in a helicopter accident off the coast of Virginia. Wes loved people and was an avid outdoorsman so it is perfect that all funds raised in his name be used to provide scholarships for underprivileged children to attend summer camp here at our 100 acre facility. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family!
Donations can be made by clicking the link above or sent by mail to YMCA Camp Weaver, Lt. J. Wesley Van Dorn Scholarship Fund, 4924 Tapawingo Trail, Greensboro, NC 27406.
Making a Difference Together!
Greensboro cares about our children. Giving to our “Send a Kid to Camp” Campaign means that you become a part of a community of supporters that change lives. Our donors consist of parents, staff members, community leaders, and volunteers. Community partnerships are also a big part of our donor base. Community partners such as the Children’s Home Society, Foster Friends, DSS, Habitat for Humanity, and Mary’s House help us identify underprivileged children who deserve and desire to experience the magic of Camp. Join us in our passion to make a difference in a child’s life. I believe that together we can raise enough funds to fill the camp every week this summer. We turn no child away because of family ability to pay– but we need your help!
Military Kids Fund
We are very appreciative of the sacrifices our military families make for our country on a daily basis. These families have considerable pressure on their daily life and need our community support. We have a designated fund set up to provide camp opportunities for military kids. These children are positive influence on our camp community and teach their fellow campers so much about patriotism and sacrifice.
