Giving to Youth Camps

Why Give to Youth Camps

Youth Camps needs your support!  Campus Recreation Youth Camps is independently funded through camper tuition. A financial partnership with Youth Camps provides children with recreational opportunities to enrich their summer experience. Annual gifts are imperative because funds raised are integral to making Youth Camps a one-of-a-kind experience.  Your support can bring a new experience to our campers or help a camper whose family cannot afford tuition. 

Plus, donations to Youth Camps are tax-deductible! Your business, organization or individual support will also be recognized on our Youth Camps website.
