What to Expect


About the cause - Y Camps

We know that camp can have a profoundly positive and lasting effect on children. This year, all funds raised by Y Cliffhanger participants will help send kids in our community to camp, where they will learn new skills, explore hidden talents, develop friendships and create lasting memories. 

For more than 60 years, the YMCA-YWCA of the National Capital Region has been providing opportunities for children to attend camp, and ensuring that low-income families, and those experiencing financial hardship, are not excluded from participating. We are dedicated to keeping Y camps accessible for every child and youth in our communities, but we can’t do it alone – your help is critical!

Over 5,000 kids take part in Y camps each year - over 47% of these kids require financial assistance in order to attend. You can help kids find a place of belonging and transformation. A place where they are encouraged to explore and learn in a safe, fun and supportive environment.
