At the end of every session, campers who are checking out have the option of having their leftover camp store money refunded to them or they can choose to donate it back to camp. Once donated, the money is tallied and then designated to be spent improving camp programs. In previous years we've been able to purchased a new basketball goal, new surfboard leashes, new shade tents, and so much more.
A majority of our awesome campers are happy to donate the leftover money...and it adds up quickly! By the end of session 7 the total donations already exceed $2,000 for 2012. That money will go along way to making programs at YMCA Camp Surf that much better than they already are. A special thanks to our generous campers (and parents) for giving back!
