MAKE A DIFFERENCE
At Chingachgook, we believe in the magic of Camp. We believe in creating a welcoming community, where we are constantly striving to improve ourselves and others. Now, more than ever, we need your support to help us keep the spirit of Chingachgook alive. Your gift to YMCA Camp Chingachgook will ensure we continue to excel at providing
life-changing experiences in the outdoors for all.
If you would like to make a gift, alongside the Glens Falls Class of '72, in memory of Harvey Dearstyne, please click here.
SUSTAIN YMCA CAMP CHINGACHGOOK
We are proud to continue to be here for our community as we all re-emerge from this crisis, but we need your support. Our commitment to strengthening the community through services and programs that promote healthy living, social responsibility, and youth development remains as strong as ever.
Funds from your contributions will help us re-introduce our international staff program, which brings a unique cultural experience to our campers, as well as help us grow and improve all our program areas. Please give to this year’s campaign to ensure we can continue operations and stay financially stable for years to come.
As an anchor in the communities we serve, Chingachgook is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion, knowing that these efforts create better opportunities for all. In the critical role as a community advocate and partner, Camp and the Y are uniquely positioned to bring our community together. Today, more children, adults, and families will rely on our programs and will need financial assistance. With your help, we can work to ensure the camp magic is available for all current and future Chingachgook kids - because we are stronger together.
We continue to provide safe spaces for difficult discussions and personal growth. This year we will continue to work to establish partnerships with organizations working to make the outdoors more accessible for all, and engage our staff and Council of Advisors in Racial Equity training. We are proud to be here for everyone in our community, and this work is the lifeblood of our mission, but we simply cannot do this critical work alone – we need your help. Help us provide scholarships so that camp can be a reality for all campers this summer.
