For over fifty years, one of our most important goals at the Darien Y has always been to enrich the lives of children in our community. Our YMCA programs provide kids with experiences that help them grow to be responsible, successful adults, and make the community we love a better place to live.
In order to provide programs including summer camp, we have launched our “Send a Kid to Camp Campaign.” Summer camp is an invaluable program that provides all children with the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. However, there are families in our area unable to afford summer camp for their children.
Last summer we provided 178 local children with financial assistance for summer camp so they had the opportunity to learn new skills, make friends, and participate in exciting adventures. This would not have been possible without the support of our generous donors.
Help us reach this goal by making a pledge or donating at the Darien Y Front Desk, donating online at www.darien-ymca.org/make-a-donation, or texting YCAMP to 44-321.
Corporate donors will be recognized with signage in our lobby during the Healthy Kids Day event we are hosting for the community on April 27*.
