It’s easy to help!

For the next few months we will preparing for YMCA Camp Weaver’s Annual “Send a Kid to Camp” Kick-Off event fundraiser (and there are a few easy ways you can help!)


Our Annual Giving Campaign “Send a Kid to Camp” program provides scholarships for underserved, 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 and it is our goal to ensure that every child has this opportunity. Camp helps kids to do better in school, lessening the detrimental effects of summer learning loss and builds invaluable self-confidence.


We are currently collecting donations of items for our silent auction. We already have many exciting items like tickets to Disney, a cabin stay in the NC mountains, locally made crafts, Merlefest tickets, gift cards to restaurants, etc. but we still need many more items!


If you’d be willing to contact your crafty friends, local businesses, artists, sports organizations, etc. to help us collect items (or would like to donate something personally) please let us know. I can provide you with “ask” materials detailing our fundraiser. Here is a link to examples of auction item ideas.


Donors will gain exposure via our social media accounts and announcements at the event as a thank you for their support.


For more information, please email allison@campweaver.org, visit us online here or call us at 336.697.0525.
