Find Your Cause. Find Your Y.


Send a Kid To Camp Campaign - 2022

Summer camp is an experience every child deserves! That’s why the Darien YMCA supports local families in need by providing discounted camp registration fees through our financial assistance program.  

When you donate to the Darien Y’s Send a Kid to Camp Campaign, you give the gift of fun-filled memories that last a lifetime! Your donation helps ensure more kids grow and learn through exploration, build self-confidence and independence, find new friends and embrace differences, and develop skills that support healthy and active lives.  

With your gift, you can give a child in our community the Best Summer Ever regardless of their family’s financial position. No amount is too small, and every dollar counts! Please help Send A Kid to Camp this summer!  


Gives a working parent a safe and FUN place to send their children after camp ends through our Afternoon Navigators and Extended Day programs! 

Gives a camper with diverse abilities a week to reconnect with friends while swimming and sailing their afternoons away on Holly Pond. 

Gives a middle schooler a fun-filled week outdoors with paddle boarding, GaGa by the Sound, STEM activities and more at our Pioneer Teen Camp
