YMCA Camp Cullen will offer more than 1,028 sliding scale scholarships to children that live in low income areas of Houston this year so they too can benefit from our extraordinary resident camp program. Many of these children would not get an opportunity to learn and develop new skills in the summer. Studies show that children that are exposed to education programs over the summer months show immense improvement in summer learning loss.
Studies have found that children, parents and camp staff see improvements in positive identity, social skills, physical and thinking skills, positive values, and spirituality due to camping experiences.
Our goal is to help youth acquire these building blocks to create a firm foundation for their lives and a positive identity; a strong sense of power, purpose and self-worth; and values that will enable them to make wise choices throughout life.
Would you consider joining me in this important endeavor by making a tax-deducible donation to YMCA Camp Cullen; 100% of the dollars go directly to provide sliding scale camperships for deserving children in the Houston Area.
