YMCA Camp Seymour changes communities and lives for the better.
Sometimes I get chills on my arms when I walk around places like the Rich Lodge or the outdoor chapel at Camp Seymour and can almost feel the "warm glow" created by thousands and thousands of people over decades and decades that have had fun, powerful, and life changing experiences at this special place through our inclusive programs.
Becca and I give to this campaign because we see kids benefitting from Camp Seymour’s Outdoor and Environmental Education Program every day. Students, parent chaperones, and teachers from all over Western Washington immerse themselves in a multiple day overnight experience where they learn about Honesty, Caring, Respect, and Responsibility through hands-on activities taught by professional role models. We see kids trying new activities like boating, archery, and orienteering. We see kids learn and get excited about marine science, sustainability, ecosystems, reptiles, and nature. Please join us in supporting youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility through Camp Seymour programs.
We also have experienced our own children having wonderful summer and day camp experiences at Camp Seymour. Please know that 100% of your gift goes directly to camp financial aid. Thank you for your generous contribution to the Y.
Scott and Becca Gjertson
