Why this petition matters

Started by Champions of Camp

The goal of this petition is to delay the sale of the New York YMCA Camp to allow the opportunity for the Champions of Camp to raise the funds to ensure the mission of the New York YMCA Camp will continue.

What is our story? 102 years of life changing experiences for youth from the five boroughs of New York City. The New York City YMCA and all of its branches, including camp, have been devastated by the financial hardships that COVID-19 has wrought. Sadly the YMCA of Greater New York made the decision to sell the camp property very quickly and time is of the essence to save our camp. 

Camp promotes a diverse culture of acceptance and inclusion for all, including many who would never have the had the opportunity to experience camp due to inability to pay and regardless of socio-economic background. 

The New York YMCA Camp has served youth, teens, college students, New York City Schools through outdoor education programs, family campers,  participants in wellness weekends and retreats.  Exchange visitors participating in the BridgeUSA program come from all over the world to be a part of the summer camp community. The list of those entering the gates of camp is endless. 

This year, New York City youth need camp more than ever.  Our commitment is to ensure that NYC's young and future generations are able to continue to gain life skills, develop confidence and so much more through the camp experience.

Note: Thank you to all those supporting promoting the message to a larger audience. Any monies donated are only to promote the message to more individuals and this is wonderful as the more views, the more shares, the more signers. We just wanted to make sure that you are aware that these donations are not going to the Champions of Camp or to save camp.
