Community Support Campaign

Every year the Y of Boulder Valley raises money to be able to provide financial support to our members who have financial challenges and otherwise would not be able to participate in our programs. We provide support to 30% of our participants in many of our programs including Camp Santa Maria. If you have the means to help us meet our $340,000 Community Support Campaign goal, please use the Donate Now button below. Thank you!

Every day the YMCA reaches out to those in need. We rely on community support to do this. Each year staff members and volunteers raise funds to help make camp programs accessible to all families through our Community Support Campaign. Your contribution to the Community Support Campaign funds scholarships for campers to experience YMCA Camp Santa Maria each year.
