For more than a century we’ve weathered many storms. Some of these storms put camp within a whisper of extinction. As we look to the future, we learn from our past. We are stronger than ever financially. We are all stewards of Phantom’s future. And, we are reconstituting our commitment to funding the future of Phantom forever.
Why? Because camp is a nurturing environment unknown to most children. Where campers help each other, build each other up, include one another. If a child finds a more accepting place, they must be at home with family. If they find a place where summer becomes a foundation for life—where values are caught, not taught—there’s only one place to get this experience. That’s at Phantom Lake YMCA Camp. Where kids are free to just be.
