Thank you for giving a child an unforgettable summer!

You know what they say, extraordinary things happen when ordinary people roll up their sleeves, come together and take action… that’s why we want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all our Send a Kid to Camp donors! This year over 2,200 generous community members came together and gave hundreds of local children a brighter and happier summer at Y camp! We are so lucky to have the best, most extraordinary supporters in Maryland! Thank you.
