The Valley of the Sun YMCA’s Camps at Camp Sky-Y and Chauncey Ranch 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.

This past year, we provided 350 financial scholarships to children and families in need. We need YOU to help us make a bigger difference.

The YMCA Camps engage 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 fun of camp fires, canoeing, archery, dancing, and meaningful relationships. This year, it is our goal to help 350 more children and families be a part of something bigger. The Annual Support Campaign allows us to make a greater impact on people’s lives who have yet to share this experience.

With your support, we can also assist local families in need. We continue to meet these needs by offering affordable life-saving swim lessons and drowning prevention programs in the Ahwatukee Foothills area. Our campaign allows us to keep youth programs affordable for local families by providing reduced-cost programs like teen volunteerism, after school care, and mentoring.

The Y is a charity, dedicated to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. With programs from A to Z—like athletics to advocacy, dance classes to disease prevention, volleyball to volunteerism—we don’t just strengthen individuals, we strengthen communities.
