2019 Annual “Send a Kid to Camp” Giving Campaign Kick-Off

2019 Annual “Send a Kid to Camp” Giving Campaign Kick-Off

Every year Camp Weaver is proud to host a fundraising event to kick-off the Annual “Send a Kid to Camp” Giving Campaign.

Our Annual “Send a Kid to Camp” Giving Campaign program provides scholarships for underserved, underprivileged, deserving children 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.

With the support of donors and local businesses we will build a better us by ensuring that YMCA Camp Weaver’s doors are open to all. All of the support we receive 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.
