We Can Do So Much More Together!

YMCA Camp Weaver is your partner, standing with you to strengthen our community.

Our Annual Giving Campaign provides scholarships for under-served, underprivileged, deserving kids to attend summer camp and participate in valuable outdoor education opportunities. Many children never have the opportunity to experience the magic of camp, it’s our goal to ensure that every child has this opportunity.

Every dollar raised stays local and has a lasting impact on children in our community. Your support will build a better us by ensuring that YMCA Camp Weaver’s doors are open to all. Your support helps hundreds of youth live healthier and happier lives. Camp helps kids to do better in school, lessening the detrimental effects of summer learning loss and builds invaluable self confidence.

Through our community partnerships and our financial assistance application process we identify families who need and deserve our help. Without quality day and overnight camp opportunities, children often spend all summer home bored in potentially unsafe situations.

For a better you. For a better community. For a better us.™
