Give the Gift of Camp on Giving Tuesday!

Camp Burgess and Hayward Wed 08, 2017

Thanksgiving is a day to give thanks. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are days to get deals. On Tuesday, November 28, people and organizations around the world come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.


Giving Tuesday is a great time to do something good for your community. Please consider making a donation of any amount to support the important work of the Y and Camp Burgess & Hayward this Giving Tuesday.

Over 300 children attended our programs on scholarships this year and the need is even greater for 2018. Join us in helping share the Lessons of Camp and the Lessons of Life, by making a pledge to our Annual Campaign…

Every year we raise funds through the Annual Campaign to provide “Camperships” to those families in need. Our goal is to help children who would otherwise not be able to experience all that Camp Burgess & Hayward has to offer, get to Camp. We provide children with a safe and nurturing environment, where they are able to develop positive relationships, achieve personal goals, and embark upon new endeavors.

Last year, your generous gifts helped ensure that no child’s financial situation prevented them from participating in programs at Camp Burgess & Hayward — over 300 children were awarded scholarships to take part in our Overnight Camps, Adventure Trips and Outdoor Education programs.


Our online giving page is convenient and secure. Donate or begin fundraising on our behalf, with your own personal giving page, today!

How does my donation help?

100% of your tax-deductible contribution will go directly to helping us give the gift of camp to every child that wants to attend. With your assistance, we will ensure that no child’s financial situation prevents them from participating in our programs.

Is my contribution tax-deductible?

The South Shore YMCA is a 501(c)3 organization. We will mail you an acknowledgement of your donation for your records.
