Unrestriced Donations/1896 Society
We have deliberately chosen to keep our camp fees affordable so that all families can afford to send their children to camp. We even offer a voluntary 3-tier fee structure for Resident Camp. Your contributions are needed to fill the gap not met by camper fees to help purchase program supplies and cover other general operating expenses. Whether you choose to make a one time donation, an annual donation or monthly donations we appreciate all the help that you give. Learn how you can be a member of our 1896 Society. -Read More
Targeted Giving - Buildings
Many new facility improvements have recently been finished and many are currently underway. These projects enhance our ability to provide a safe and comfortable environment for our campers while retaining our rustic camp feeling. In order to continue the momentum with these improvements we need support from people willing to help sponsor these projects.
Targeted Giving - Progam Equipment
Each year aging program equipment is replaced and new programs areas are developed to ensure that we continue to offer safe and exciting programs. In recent years generous donations have helped us replace some of our aging sailboats, funyaks and floatation devices. We have been able to build an 18 hole frisbee golf course, construct a zip-line through the Kettles and replace our raft with an aqua trampoline! Future plans include a tube slide, climbing tower and archery equipment.
Camp Alum Bob Holloway has made a significant lead gift to begin an endowment fund for Phantom Lake YMCA Camp. The purpose of the Fund is to provide long-range financial support for either operating expenses or capital expenses to allow us to continue our mission into the future.
