The YMCA of Metro Atlanta makes a huge impact in our local community -- every day. I'm proud to be a Y Champion to ensure more local kids, teens, and families have access and opportunity to be a part of the Y. I am asking you to support me in my efforts to help give ALL people the opportunity to reach their full potential through Y programs. My name is Mary Ellis Davies and I've been blessed to be able to attend camp for eleven years. This past summer I was a part staff serving as a CIT in Watersports for three weeks. Being on staff is not an easy job. I can easily say those three weeks were the most challenging, but most rewarding three weeks in my life so far. The lifelong memories and relationships formed with the campers are something I will cherish forever. Camp has made me truly understand the definition of servant leadership and how to serve others before you serve yourself. The mission of camp is to fight for those who can’t fight for themselves and I do believe that it changes campers lives. So much goes on behind the scenes to providing campers the best experience possible. Camp will forever hold a special place in my heart and I choose to give back so that other kids will share the same experiences I once did. Camp is such a special place where you meet amazing people and really grow closer to Christ. From jumping up and down during a dance party, to sitting in the colosseum, hand in hand, singing "sweet home camp high harbour," you really feel the love of God at camp. I am beyond excited to be attending camp for 3 weeks this summer working as a Counselor In Training. I do believe that God does amazing things at Camp High Harbour and I can't wait to see what He has in store for us this coming summer. So many kids in the Metro Atlanta area are not privileged enough to experience the great opportunities that camp has. I have had the opportunity to go to camp, and I would really appreciate if you would consider donating to help send other deserving youth to camp, too. Please join me and support the Y by making a donation today. Your gift will truly make a meaningful difference in the lives of those who need the Y most.
