Congrats to our Campership Grant contest winner, Camp Tecumseh YMCA of Brookston, Indiana! Located on 500 acres of scenic riverfront woodlands, Camp Tecumseh YMCA offers day camps and resident camps to youths aged 8 to 15, along with retreats, leadership training and outdoor education.
With the grant, Camp Tecumseh will provide 10 scholarships to local day campers this summer.
“Our programs have a huge impact on less-advantaged youth. One parent recently commented on how a yearly week-long day camp at Camp Tecumseh had transformed her son, allowing him to grow in confidence, joy and faith over the years,” said Ben Meyaard, Director of Camper Support at Camp Tecumseh YMCA.
More than 450 camps from Canada and the U.S. submitted a Grant entry form. To read more, visit our Let’s Talk Camp blog!
