The Rocky Run YMCA serves over 500 kids each year during our summer camp season. Camp themes change each year and provide youth throughout the area with the ability to pursue their hobbies, experience new adventures, and more!

Your donation to the Rocky Run Y directly supports our Financial Assistance Program, which allows us to uplift members of our community and connect them with impactful programming, like camp, regardless of their ability to pay.


Candice's Story

My son loves summer camp at Rocky Run YMCA. Tristen has been attending summer camps at this location for five years and has enjoyed every day he attended.

As I am a single mom and wanting the best for my son, the YMCA's financial assistance has been a very big help for me. It's a life saver and I honestly believe if they didn't offer this for struggling parents like myself, I don't see it possible for him to attend.

I hope that the Rocky Run Y's financial assistance program continues to provide for myself and other families that are struggling and need help. Thanks for supporting my son all these years with financial help, because it has made it possible for him to keep coming back.
