Making Camp Affordable

Summer camp is part of the fabric of childhood itself. It shapes self-confidence, character, education, independence, social skills and more. YMCA Camp Letts would like to help make this experience possible for all children. Here are some suggestions:

  • Camper Scholarships - Scholarships to attend Camp are available on the basis of financial need. To apply, please call 410-919-1400.
  • Flexible Payment Plans - We will work with you to create a manageable payment plan that is right for your family.
  • Tax Refund - There is no better way to use that money than to invest it in your children!
  • Birthday and Christmas Gifts - Ask others for the gift of camp.

You can also help your camper raise money on his/ her own! It’s a great way to teach them money management and get them invested in the future. Here are some ways they can fundraise:

  • Hold a neighborhood car wash
  • Bake sale at sporting events, shopping centers or your block
  • Provide pet services (pets need walking, washing, sitting and even training!)
  • Make and sell crafts such as jewelry or decorative candles
  • Babysit smaller children if they’re at least 11 years old
  • Do yard or house work for neighbors or the elderly
  • Take their gently-used clothing to a consignment shop
  • Try tutoring or being a class helper
  • Be creative!
