Now more than ever our children need to unplug and have some fun this summer. Sadly for some children, their families cannot afford to give them access to outdoor activities or places where they can safely interact with their peers. YMCA Camps offer programs that allows children to unplug, be active and socially engaged and most importantly, have FUN!

Through the support of generous donors, the Darien YMCA offers a Financial Assistance program to ensure no child is turned away from this camp experience for their inability to pay.

Will you join us this summer to make sure EVERYONE can enjoy a Summer Unplugged?
