Benefitting the YMCA of
Greater New York’s Camp Scholarship Fund
EVENT DATE: May 09, 2018
INDIVIDUAL FUNDRAISING GOAL: $250 | TEAM FUNDRAISING GOAL: $2,000
The Y is proud to introduce this event in partnership with AT&T. The bowl-a-thon will raise funds to support scholarships for children who would not otherwise have access to summer camp.
Y camps provide thousands of young people project-based learning and enrichment opportunities -- including STEM, literacy, and other academic programming -- which help combat summer learning loss. Recent studies show that, on average, student's achievement scores decline over summer vacation by one month’s worth of school-year learning. Additionally, income-based reading gaps grow over the summer: middle class students tend to show improvement in reading skills, while lower-income students tended to experience loss. Y camps also ensure that working parents have a safe place to send their children during the day.
To support the Y in this work that is critical to both students and parents, please consider becoming an event sponsor or our joining the bowl-a-thon as a team captain.
