Be the reason a child in need has an unforgettable summer.

Y Camp brings laughter, fun, new friendships, and opportunities for learning and discovery to children across Central Maryland.

Did you know that 4 out of every ten children who attend Y Camp and summer programs can only do so because of generous donations from people like you?

That’s why we need your help. By making a tax-deductible donation today, you’ll give local children living in poverty the relief, safety and nurturing support that Y Camp provides. Every gift counts. Please give generously today. 

Thank you. We deeply appreciate your support.

Feeling connected, healthy and happy helps us thrive.

The Y is where you and your family can belong, unplug and achieve more - in health and happiness! Whether you're in need of quality family time, a moment to unplug from the daily grind, ways to help strengthen your community, motivation to achieve more through exercise and nutrition, a sense of belonging, opportunities to connect with others, or all of the above, the Y has what you need.

There's much more going on in our Centers than just exercise, but we have that too:

  • Fun exercise classes for all fitness levels
  • The best equipment for the best results
