YMCA Camp Fort Monroe
Be a part of #GivingTuesday as we celebrate this global day of giving back, celebrating generosity and kindness.
Fun? It’s in our nature at YMCA Camp Fort Monroe
Camp is located on the grounds of old Fort Monroe in Hampton, Virginia. The unique location allows us to connect children to the outdoors through activities like boating, fishing, crabbing, biking, swimming, nature exploration, and beach activities in addition to more traditional camp activities like sports and field games. We also offer specialty camps for cheer & dance, music & drama and team building & leadership.
YMCA Camp Fort Monroe is a day-camp but, because of its location, it offers adventures similar to those kids might have at our resident camp, Camp Kekoka. Camp Fort Monroe is a fun alternative for parents of kids who are ready for more from their summer camp experience.
Parents can drop their children off at YMCA Camp Fort Monroe or the Victory Family YMCA located in Yorktown. Children are bussed to Camp Fort Monroe from the Y and bussed back to the Y at the end of the day.
WHAT’S HAPPENING AT CAMP
Mark your calendars now!
On December 1, 2015 the fourth Annual Giving Tuesday online event will take place. This is a day of giving back that celebrates generosity and kindness.
You know the challenges that we face in our community. People of all ages and backgrounds are struggling to reach their full potential. More and more children face seemingly insurmountable learning gaps. Families find it difficult to spend quality time together. Playing outside has become a rarity. Face time happens through a phone. And instead of seeing the income gap shrink, it seems all we do is watch it grow.
But where society falls short, the Y-and individuals like YOU step in.
In the same way that Black Friday and Cyber Monday kick off the buying season, #GivingTuesday kicks off the GIVING season! The most meaningful gift we can give our children, loved ones, friends and neighbors is the commitment to come together and build a better community.
Join us this Giving Tuesday, make a donation to the Y and take your first step in making a difference and building a better us. Together, we make a difference in the lives of thousands of people and a huge impact on each individual we serve.
