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 next 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. When you provide financial support to Camp Day, you ensure the Y’s commitment to providing all children the opportunity to grow, connect and learn at camp—keeping the tradition and camp spirit alive. All gifts are welcome and we are happy to discuss naming opportunities for major gifts.
