Camp Annual Campaigns

Our three summer camps - Camp Chickami, Camp Pikati and Camp Frank A. Day - comprise our largest youth development programming. Children and teenagers from three to fifteen years old spend their summers with us swimming, boating, playing, and creating. Even more, they build confidence and independence, try new things, and engage in unique communities that foster lifelong friendships.

Donations to our camps’ Annual Campaigns enable children from all economic backgrounds to experience the special magic of summer camp. Thanks to the generosity of our community of donors, this summer (2018) we distributed over $152,000 to 141 campers.

Camp Chickami Annual Campaign

Camp Chickami is a thriving community with over 60 years of tradition. We’d like to secure a vibrant future by ensuring our doors stay open to campers of all backgrounds, maintaining healthy facilities, preserving Pine Brook and keeping our woods standing tall. Please consider donating to the West Suburban YMCA’s Camp Chickami to help even more kids have the best summer ever!

Camp Pikati Annual Campaign

Camp Pikati runs all summer long at our 276 Church Street facility. Help us ensure our doors stay open to campers of all backgrounds next summer.

Camp Frank A. Day Annual Campaign

Keeping camp spirit alive—that intangible something which measures the worth of every camp—is more important than ever as we move into the second century of residential camping at Camp Frank A. Day. Camp spirit endures when our campers, staff and alumni believe that camp is becoming better because of their efforts, that they are making an impact on the thousands of children who will come together as a community at Camp Frank A. Day over the next 100 years.
