Kids will be kids

if they are given the chance.
For some kids the summer experience is just so special because it is not every day that they can have so much freedom to act silly, take risks and just BE A KID.


Meet Michael:
clientuploads/our_impact/Michael_thumb.jpgMichael is a good student, plays the piano at an advanced level and has been a long time participant of the YMCA. The Y has been a wonderful part of their family’s growth and development. His older brother Alex’s health is extremely delicate as he is deaf, blind, does not speak and requires 24 hours care. At age 8 Michael has a lot of responsibility. He helps his mom with household chores as well as taking care of Alex.

Michael needs time to be a kid and to get away from the stressors of his unique situation. He is not alone. We have other children in our communities who face pressures beyond their years and would benefit from a YMCA Summer Camp experience. It’s not too late. Your gift will provide summer camp for kids and families who need a little extra help.

Summer camp is a magical time for kids to explore, learn, and laugh... one that every child deserves.

This is only one of many camper stories funded in part by Metro YMCA Financial Assistance Fund. Your gift will help us support more stories and create more possibilities.

The YMCA make strengthening our communities our cause. We help individuals and families everyday become stronger, more connected and secure. Help us make an impact in your community. Give to the Y.
