“The YMCA Summer camp has been a place where my kids have been going to for a number of years.  They have been there for me in my time of need, and they provide a wonderful outlet for the kids during the summer instead of being stuck in a home. There is always something to do and they provide counselors that the kids can look up and emulate when they get older.  There is advancement opportunity for campers, and they can go from camper, to junior LIT, to LIT, and finally to counselor.  I think it’s a great program that allows each child something to look forward to in the future.”
