The YMCA excels at providing young people with opportunities to have fun and develop lifelong skills, while realizing the best in themselves and others. As Canada’s largest camp provider, the YMCA offers outstanding life development experiences for more than 125,000 children each year.
On average, the YMCA of Eastern Ontario subsidizes one in five children who attend our summer camps. But we can only do this with your help.
Each spring, we reach out to our community to raise funds to send children to camp.
Betty-Anne is one of our passionate camp supporters. Here is what summer camp means to her and why she helps to send kids to camp. She shares her story in hopes that you will be inspired to help a child build life-long memories through Y summer camps.
