2014 Send a Kid To Camp Campaign Results

Send a Kid to Camp 2014

140% to Goal




2014 was a year of huge successes for YMCA Camp Hanes! Over $240,000 were raised to send kids to Camp Hanes this summer. Because of a generous Matching Gift from our friend Bob Compton, the Send a Kid to Camp campaign exceeded previous years in every way; this year, more kids were able to experience Camp than ever before. Read more about the matching gift below.

After visiting YMCA Camp Hanes Bob Compton wrote:  “I was really impressed by the thoughtful and loving approach the staff takes in working with the campers. It’s easy to see how Camp Hanes can be a positive and profound experience. Letting kids try lots of things they might find scary at first, in a supportive environment, is the perfect way to build self-confidence!”

To back up his words, Bob, already a generous donor, made $50,000 available, on a matching basis to help camp.  As an incentive, to broaden Camp’s donor base, and make the camp experience available to more kids, Bob matched all new donations, or increases in gifts, based on the 2013 giving year.  The match was dollar-for-dollar up to $50,000.
