HELP A CHILD GAIN THE GIFT OF SUMMER

SEND A KID TO CAMP


OUR GOAL: SEND 300 KIDS TO CAMP

Help the Greater Naples YMCA send kids to camp this summer!

The Y knows that in order for communities to succeed, everyone must have the opportunity to reach their full potential. Studies show that camp experiences promote physical well-being for youth and help them gain important social skills. With summer just around the corner, the Y is helping ensure that every child—regardless of age, income or background—has the opportunity to attend summer camp at the Y!

As a charitable organization, the Greater Naples YMCA provides financial assistance so all kids can enjoy achievement, friendship & memories through our programs. Your generous gift ensures that no camper is denied the best summer ever because of the lack of financial resources.

The Y’s “Send a Kid to Camp” campaign helps kids, especially underserved youth, attend camp, where they are introduced to new experiences that build confidence and develop skills to help them reach their full potential. In 2018, the Y awarded more than $22,000 in financial assistance, sending kids to camp who would have been unable to attend otherwise.

“It’s important that kids stay engaged socially, physically and academically throughout the summer. Summer camp is a wonderful way to ensure that,” says Angeliz Ramos, Youth Development Director. “And with the community’s support, together we can ensure all children in Collier County can discover and reach their full potential.”
