KIDS LOST SPRING
LET’S SAVE SUMMER!
The Westport Weston Family YMCA is excited to be able to open the NEW YMCA Camp Mahackeno on June 29th!
Over the past two and a half months, kids have lost so many things, school, social connection with friends and opportunities for physical activity through their favorite spring sports.
With thousands of layoffs and furloughs across Connecticut, many people are struggling financially at this time and we do not want kids to suffer. Now more than ever the Financial Assistance program at the YMCA will be needed and might be the only thing that allows a family to send their child to summer camp.
In 2019, the Y gave out $70,000 in camperships for kids to attend Camp Mahackeno however, this summer we will give out more money than ever. This year we expect that number to increase to $100,000.
Your support is critical Let’s Save Summer for kids in our community.
The cost of camp per week is $395. Financial Assistance is given out in many different increments depending on need.
- 25% financial assistance – $100 donation – covers 1 child for 1 week of camp/ $900 donation – covers financial assistance for 9 weeks of camp
- 30% financial assistance – $120 donation – covers 1 child for 1 week of camp/ $1,100 donation – covers financial assistance for 9 weeks of camp
- 50% financial assistance – $200 donation – covers 1 child for 1 week of camp/ $1,800 donation – covers financial assistance for 9 weeks of campAny donation will be greatly appreciated and will help the Y provide for children in our community.
