Save NY YMCA Camp- Talcott, McAlister & Greenkill

Tax deductible

The YMCA of Greater New York is selling its Sleepaway Camps.  The goal of this campaign is to raise the funds to ensure the mission of the New York YMCA Camp will continue.  Funds will be used for legal fees and other related costs to purchase camp or avoid the YMCA from selling camp.

What is our story? 102 years of life changing experiences for youth from the five boroughs of New York City. The New York City YMCA and all of its branches, including camp, have been devastated by the financial hardships that COVID-19 has wrought. Sadly the YMCA of Greater New York made the decision to sell the camp property very quickly and time is of the essence to save our camp. 

Camp promotes a diverse culture of acceptance and inclusion for all, including many who would never have the had the opportunity to experience camp due to inability to pay and regardless of socio-economic background. 

The New York YMCA Camp has served youth, teens, college students, New York City Schools through outdoor education programs, family campers,  participants in wellness weekends and retreats.  Exchange visitors participating in summer camp  come from all over the world to be a part of the summer camp community. The list of those entering the gates of camp is endless. 

This year, New York City youth need camp more than ever.  Our commitment is to ensure that NYC's young and future generations are able to continue to gain life skills, develop confidence and so much more through the camp experience.  

 Should the effort be unsuccessful or opportunities to stop the sale or purchase the camp cease to exist, any remaining funds will be used for scholarships to Frost Valley YMCA Camp with a consistent mission. 

If you have capacity for a major gift (over $10,000) please reach out to Emily Van Ingen @ [email redacted] or on FaceBook.

Thank you!!!
