strengthening our military families

Your gift gives stability to children, peace of mind to spouses of deployed service members, and a community for families when they are in a new and different place.

The Y is committed to serving members of the military and their families in every stage of life. In partnership with Camp Corral, children of wounded, ill, or fallen service members find belonging during a special week of overnight camp. Families like the Custer Family have been able to enjoy camp thanks to a partnership with the Armed Services YMCA. Through this partnership, children from military families experience the outdoors and learn new skills in a safe environment at YMCA Camp Seymour and YMCA Camp Lake Helena. At YMCA facilities, military spouses connect to a community of support and encouragement.

At the Y, we honor the service of our neighbors who serve in the military and the service of their families. You can help us expand that beacon of hope to more children and families in our region. Donate today to send one child to camp.

  • The most important part of camp is Morning Inspiration; it's basically where they reiterate the four core values: caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. Camp Corral is really important because kids come here to have a good time. Sometimes, they don't have either the support at home, or their parents are deployed or something like that, and so they come here and you know you're always welcomed here and you're always going to have a family here.
