Downeast YMCA has a Summer Camp!
Congratulations to the people and contributors of the Downeast Family YMCA on their full ownership of shore front property on Webb Pond in Eastbrook! In over two and a half years of fundraising the mission has been accomplished. The beautiful lodge and beach will be used for the Y’s summer camp program. This will benefit many kids in the area, giving them woods to explore, a beach to swim from and the opportunity for many different learning activities!
The fund raising began back in February of 2010 with the goal of collecting 1.2 million dollars. Due to the generosity of many area businesses and individuals the dream has become reality! Great job everyone!
Of course it will still take more cash to keep things going. You can make a gift to the Y Camp by calling Jeanne Wood at 667-3086 or email her at email@example.com. For more information on the Downeast Family YMCA Summer Camp go here http://defymca.org/programs/camp/
