Our Strong Kids Campaign needs you.
Through the generosity of over 400 donors comprising staff, members, and companies more than $155,000 was raised towards the Strong Kids campaign in 2012. These dollars made it possible for 900 people, our neighbors, to walk through our doors and take the first step toward a healthier lifestyle.
Memberships, health & wellness programs, camperships and child care were offered at reduced pricing to those who qualified for financial need. We welcome everyone and because of your support, we have already raised over $100,000 to date. It’s not over yet, as our association goal is to reach more than $160,000 by December 31st.

“Barb and I donate to the Y each year because we know it will promote the Y’s core values-Honesty, Caring, Respect and Responsibility. Being at the Y often, we get to see first-hand the awesome kids who are in the program and realize without financial assistance, some may not have been afforded the opportunity that no one should be denied. As they say, “the children are our future” and we should do everything possible to assist them. We are honored to be able to give back to a program that gave so much to our daughters, Laura and Sara.“ – Gary & Barbara K.
“I almost didn’t get to go to summer camp as a child since my parents couldn’t afford to have two of us in camp at once. But that changed when we were awarded a campership. Camp really made my summers memorable and helped me become an independent person. Now we have our own child and we plan on sending her to camp, but realize not all parents have the same financial ability. We made a donation to the Y’s Strong Kids campaign so another child could have an enriching and fun summer camp experience!” – Natalie & Sean M.
