The YMCA believes that every child should have the opportunity to enjoy a summer camp experience. As a charity, the Madison Area YMCA offers a financial assistance program that provides help to families who cannot afford the full price of camp.

Through generous donations and special events, the Madison Area YMCA provided 254 weeks of camp in 2019 which totaled more than $71,500 in assistance. 


When you register your child for camp this year, please consider making a donation. Our financial assistance does more than send kids to camp. You’ll help ensure that another child will have the best summer ever. 

The Y.™ For a better us.
