Each year, Camp Winnebago, a branch of the YMCA of Rock River Valley, is forced to place dozens of children on a waiting list for day camp because of a lack of space at camp. That means that 40 or more campers each week are unable to attend camp programs.
Through the generosity of the Scott and Virginia Webster Charitable Trust, Camp Winnebago has received a gift to help us build a pavilion, complete with a professionally rated storm shelter, large enough to provide space for up to 80 children each week. The Webster Trust has challenged Camp Winnebago to match their gift of $125,000 to the project, meaning that every gift you give is doubled by the Trust.
The total cost of the project is $300,000. We have raised almost all the needed funds but are still seeking $40,000 to help complete the project.
Will you help us send 80 additional kids to camp for up to 12 weeks each summer?
The gift of summer camp is a gift of self-reliance, friendships, a sense of belonging, and the Y values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith.
Thank you for your support!
