Alumni, parents, and friends make summer operations at Y-Zone Camp possible through their generous support. You are the reason we’re able to provide summer day camp, Adventure Days, and more to more than 750 kids each year. Without this support, there’d be fewer friends, fewer life lessons, and less magic.

Both monetary donations and donations of in-kind items and services are always appreciated. Monetary donations go directly to camper scholarships, allowing us to share the camp experience with more kids, and in-kind donations decrease our operating costs, allowing us to pour more funds back into camp facilities, programs, staff, and more.

Some ways to help include:
