For 120 years, YMCA Camp Mason has delivered on its’ promise to build strong kids and families. Now, due to the COVID-19 crisis, we need your help to ensure that we can keep delivering on that promise for future generations.
This is a critical time as Camp had been hit hard financially with the 2020 State mandated closure of our summer overnight camp and the cancellation of nearly all our spring and fall groups. With an uncertain future ahead, we are concerned that the very survival of Camp Mason may be threatened.
Camp has faced major challenges before, though, and every time our generous Camp friends have stepped up, met the threat head on, and allowed us to continue our vital mission. Now, as then, we must turn to you for help so that Camp Mason can live on and positively impact children and families.
Camp has always been a place that allows kids to be their true selves and explore what that means to them in a safe, nurturing environment while teaching our 4 core values, respect, responsibility, caring and honesty, things that we certainly use in these trying times. We must continue to be there for them.
We believe we will all have a choice in how we remember 2020. It was a year of obstacles, yes, but it was also a year of grit, of overcoming and of small successes. As we enter into 2021, now more than ever, we know children and families are watching and we are committed to being excellent role models so they know even in the most challenging of situations, there is room to learn, grow, persevere and thrive .
Help us prevail over this crisis and bring Camp Mason back to place of financial stability so we can continue to be a place of magic and memories for generations to come. Thank you for your generosity and support.
