Free Scholarships For Lakewood Youth


Through a partnership with the City of Lakewood, the YMCA is pleased to offer free scholarships for eligible Lakewood youth to attend YMCA Summer Day Camp.

Summer Day Camp at the Y provides a fun, positive, and constructive experience to local kids where they can learn new skills, develop their talents, and grow stronger and more confident.


Through our partnership with the City of Lakewood, our goal is to help local youth recover from the negative health, education, social-emotional, and mental health stresses/traumas caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Scholarship availability is limited to individuals and households meeting ARPA criteria including meeting Federal Poverty Guidelines; living in Qualified Census Tracts (the neighborhoods of Tillicum, Springbrook, Woodbrook, and Monta Vista); Black, Indigenous, Persons of Color; or those disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.
