Annual Campaign

Annual Campaign

We have heard from so many families that their experiences at YMCA Camp Cory have been life changing; that the relationships they have formed are unique and precious; that the values and experiences are essential to who they are and the lives they live—professionally and personally.

YMCA Camp Cory is a place where lifelong friendships are created, core values are taught, and precious memories are made. Each day we work hard at providing financial options for children around the world to experience Camp Cory. With your help, every child can have  access to Camp Cory, allowing them to make their own fantastic memories and friendships.

Together we make a difference in the lives of thousands of people and a huge impact on each individual we serve. Your gift  to the Annual Campaign at YMCA Camp Cory will give a child the chance to thrive. No one is ever turned away. Your kindness can give the chance of a lifetime to the people who need it most.

Project 241

Project 241 is our promise to our community to ensure all children experience the incredible power of  camping, regardless of their financial means. Supporting Project 241 ensures every camper the opportunity to experience the many wonders and joys that camp has to offer.
