The summer can present a unique challenge for parents: how can we keep children occupied when they’re out of school? Frost Valley YMCA offers several options for parents in our community, such as Day Camp, and thanks to local businesses this option is now more affordable.

By providing scholarship dollars for children to come to camp, Frost Valley can offer children a safe environment that ensures a summer filled with productive activities to boost summer learning, encourage growth, and foster healthy friendships. Campers at Frost Valley enjoy swimming in Lake Cole, going on field trips, riding horses, and exposure to a variety of different cultures from around the world. Achievement, Relationships, and Belonging are essential dimensions of well-being that Frost Valley cultivates through Day Camp programs.

Several local businesses have made donations that support financial assistance, including Premiere Sponsor Blue Hill Lodge & Café, which generously gave $5,000 to support local families. This support helps to ensure that all families have access to quality summer care for their children. Local business sponsorships support more than 90 campers with roughly $22,000 in financial assistance.
