MAKING A DIFFERENCE
“Thank you so much for the scholarship! Thanks to you, I got to attend Camp Colman. I had lots of fun. I made lots of friends from different parts of Seattle who I keep in contact with.”
The YMCA provides incredible week-long outdoor experiences at sites like Camp Orkila in the San Juan Islands and Camp Colman in the South Puget Sound. We are extremely grateful to the YMCA Seattle for offering matching grants to our Enrichment Scholarship recipients. With their generosity, we are making a difference in the lives of many deserving teens.
We partner with teachers and counselors in the Seattle Public Schools to encourage deserving students to apply for Enrichment Scholarships. We appreciate all the time and energy they expend to provide teens with positive summer camp experiences. Thank you!
