The Valley of the Sun YMCA’s Camps at Camp Sky-Y give children and families a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It is a place to overcome the challenges of learning new skills and making new friends.


Camp Sky-Y has been building friendships and creating memories for Valley youth for 80 years! Last year, Camp Sky Y provided 183 financial scholarships totaling $113,000 to children and families in need. We need YOU to help us make an even bigger difference in 2019.


YMCA Camps imbue Arizona kids and families with a sense of adventure and exploration. Camping teaches self-reliance, a love for nature and the outdoors, and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership—all amidst the active fun of canoeing, campfires, archery, games, creative activities and meaningful relationships. This year, it is our goal to help 205 children and families be part of something bigger. The Annual Support Campaign allows us to have an impact on the lives of people who have yet to share this incredible experience.

The Y is a charity, dedicated to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We don’t just strengthen individuals, we strengthen communities.

Every gift matters.
Everyone has a role to play.
Together, we can achieve so much more.

The Y. So Much More
