SEND A KID TO CAMP!

MAKE A DIFFERENCE THAT WILL LAST A LIFETIME

Your contribution to the YMCA Kids-to-Camp Campaign, will give boys and girls in our community the chance to explore the outdoors, learn about nature, and build a positive foundation for their future. That’s why we're hoping you’ll send a donation to the YMCA of Greater Long Beach, so that deserving kids can attend YMCA Camp Oakes this summer.

It only costs $435 to create a week-long outdoor experience for a child at YMCA Camp Oakes. Please know that all sizes of gifts can help and will be matched! Click here to make your gift now. At YMCA Camp Oakes, campers live for a week in a cabin where they make lasting friendships, swim, ride a horse, fish, hike, and gather around the campfire.

Most importantly, at YMCA Camp Oakes kids learn and live out the YMCA values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility. Please make your gift to help children become the strong, considerate, and responsible citizens that we want for our community. In this time of economic uncertainty, families are finding that they simply cannot afford to give their children the chance to experience this great American tradition.
