More than 70 thousand campers have attended since our founding father "Uncle Jeff Smith" started our camp! We are very proud of the great impact the camp has had on those who have attended! We provide children with a safe and nurturing environment, where they are able to develop positive relationships, achieve personal goals, and embark upon new endeavors.

Ways to Give


PROJECT 218 raises funds to assist families and campers to make YCamp possible. Our goal is to annually have 218 campers receive financial aid every summer. With the support of friends and organizations, we provide over $90,000 in scholarships each year.


The annual fund helps us invest in new programming, complete facility projects, and purchase program supplies. Supporting the annual fund allows camper fees to remain affordable for more families. The more we help, the greater impact we can have.

wish list

We have identified a number of programming opportunities and program supplies that will help us better serve our campers and their families. Supporting our Amazon Wishlist allows for us to continue offering exceptional programming with plenty of supplies for all. We are grateful for gifts of all sizes.

This scholarship opportunity for campers started in July, 2016 to honor Bill for his extraordinary commitment to YCamp. Bill initiated the Scholarship Fund with a $1000 donation. Bill's involvement in the YCamp started in 1946 as a camper and still continues with his commitment to the Board of Directors. The funds for this Campership are supported by friends, family, and supporters of YCamp who wish to honor Bill's long standing commitment. Recipients of this Campership are determined based on the campers need, their commitment to YCamp, and their leadership activities in their community.


By making a yearly contribution of $500.00, you may adopt a cabin, and this money is used for the upkeep of our cabins. You may select a cabin name and it will be inscribed on a paddle and placed on the front of the cabin for all to see. This is a great way to honor a friend, family member or business and in turn, you are helping us keep our buildings in good repair.


We welcome gifts of stock, annuities, matured investments, gifts in wills, and other contributions. Please contact Jeff Gleason, CEO 207-395-4200 for more information.
