When you donate to the CARLS FAMILY YMCA you make the KENSINGTON VALLEY COMMUNITY better through programs such as:
Summer Day Camp: $250 sponsors one camper for one week
During the summer of 2018, we will serve children between the ages of 3 and 12. Between 7 am and 6 pm, campers will have fun while developing friendships, better their health, enhance literacy, develop skills, gain confidence and independence, and develop teamwork.
Swim Lessons: $100 will provide swim skills to one child
Our goal is to teach children to swim that would not otherwise have the opportunity due to finances, pool access, or transportation. We are partnering with Kensington Place this summer to provide water safety instruction ensuring their safety in and around the pool. The program also coordinates with other volunteer organizations to provide meals to the participants.
Reaching Higher: $5,000 provides programming for 25+ High School students
RH is a 10 week character building leadership training program than inspires and prepares students to succeed and to reach their potential.
Girls on the Run/STRIDE: $2,500 supports a team of 25+ participants for an entire season
Throughout the year the Carls Family YMCA will serve boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 11, teaching them self-confidence, healthy eating, healthy choices, and exercise. The 12 week program is followed by a 5K run where boys and girls throughout the Metro Detroit area will join together to cheer and run. This is a wonderful program that ultimately focuses on building positive attributes in young children.
Membership: $1,000 provides a family one year of membership
Provide membership to the Carls Family YMCA for individuals and families in our community to improve health, gain a sense of belonging, strengthen relationships, and provide support for those with a documented need.
Every dollar donated to the CARLS FAMILY YMCA has a lasting impact on the people of the KENSINGTON VALLEY COMMUNITY. Give today for a better us.
