BENEFITING: YES Nature to Neighborhoods
YES youth face the challenges of poverty and violence in their neighborhoods which can result in children being restricted to their homes. That's no way to spend a summer.
Join YES's "Summer Campfire Crew" and help us send 50 low income children to a week of sleep-away camp this summer. 100% of your gift will fund a transformative summer experience for children who would not otherwise be able to access this kind of summer enrichment opportunity.
$385 sends a child to one week of sleep-away summer camp, and you can make a child's summer come alive.
