Let's take a few minutes and think back to our first summer camp experience. For some it might be twenty years ago while others may have to think back a little further, but try to focus on how summer camp made you feel. If you could somehow wrap or sum up that feeling into one word, what would it be? My one word would be "WOW!" Summer camp is such a magical time in the life of a child. You can't help but get nostalgic when thinking back on the cherished friendships made, the fun field trips and the unforgettable camp songs learned. Shouldn't every child have an opportunity to experience summer camp done right?
The Andrew and Walter Young Family YMCA provides life-changing programs and services like summer day camp where youth get to experience adventure, healthy fun, personal growth, build friendships, and create lifelong memories. Unfortunately for too many children in southwest Atlanta, their parents and caregivers simply cannot afford to send them to camp. This year I hope you will accept the challenge and join me in making it the best summer ever for (50) disadvantaged youth to attend one week of camp. Together we can uplift our community, one child at a time!
