Send a Kid to Camp

The Y’s vision is to provide an inclusive YMCA camp experience and send 726 kids to camp through thanks to your support. At camp, children develop valuable life skills through disguised learning, free play, and interaction with youth of varying backgrounds, as well as build self-esteem.

Your gift the YMCA Camp Manitou-Lin provides the opportunity for kids in our community who cannot afford a camp experience to create lifelong memories. Donations from $300-$500 can support scholarships for one week of summer day camp while $600-$1,000 of support can make it possible for kids to attend overnight camp.

Legacy Giving

The Heritage Club is a circle of friends who share a commitment to the long-term financial stability of YMCA Camp Manitou-Lin and a belief that camp’s life-changing programs continue to be offered to future generations. At its core, the Heritage Club is a community of caring people coming together to meet the needs of others for lifetimes beyond their own.

Whether a gift to the Y’s endowment fund comes in the form of life insurance, a bequest in a will, or even through a gift of cash or securities, your planning for the future helps to ensure the future availability of the YMCA Camp Manitou-Lin’s programs and values to children and families throughout the West Michigan community.
