YMCA Camp McCumber for Foster Youth

For the first time ever, made possible by a YMCA grant and tremendous community support, the Shasta Family YMCA Camp McCumber hosted a specialized overnight camp for youth in foster care. Camp was truly a success!

There are lots of fun experiences to share from our time at camp and how it made a great impact in the lives of the youth. During the five-day camp, 41 foster children enjoyed classic camp activities, such as nature hikes, canoe races, archery, crafts, organized cabin games, campfires, songs, and skits. For some, camp was a time to spend with siblings who don’t get to see each other often, and for others, it was a place to be valued and heard, make new friends, and gain self-confidence. Camp had something for everyone!

One night at campfire, the youth shared about their time at camp. Many expressed how they were hesitant about coming and didn’t know what to expect. But here, at the end of the week, they didn’t want to go home because they had so much fun and were so grateful for the opportunity to attend! Many asked about coming back and some were interested in taking on a leadership role as a CIT (Counselor in Training) next year!

It was an honor to give these children a relaxing and fun week, a new perspective, and lasting memories for years to come!

We are so thankful for to all of our community partners, donors, volunteers, and supporters who helped make this special camp possible. We could not have done it successfully without you!
