A Place for Discovery

Capital Campaign

The West Suburban YMCA has served residents of Newton and surrounding communities for the last 140 years. Among the many life-changing programs offered through the Y, our four summer camps form our largest and most impactful youth development program.  Our camps provide the environment and positive role models to help kids build resilience, discover their potential, and form meaningful friendships. The character values and leadership skills they develop last a lifetime, giving them critical tools for a successful adulthood.

Understanding the importance that the physical environment has on our campers’ experiences, the time has come to reinvest in all three of our properties. We are launching a capital campaign that will allow us to ensure the quality of our buildings and properties match the unforgettable quality of our programs at all four of our sites: Camp Chickami, Camp Frank A. Day, Camp Wells, and Church Street, home to Camp Pikati.

To learn more about the campaign, including our plans, timeline, and how to get involved, please contact Sara Pollock DeMedeiros, VP of Mission Advancement, at or 617-244-6050 ex. 3099.
