These are challenging financial times. Families are feeling the pinch, and school is ending soon. What will the kids do this summer? YMCA Camp Mason has the answer!
May 31, 2011 - PRLog -- Hardwick, NJ - May 26, 2011: These are challenging financial times. Families are feeling the pinch, and with the school year ending soon parents are faced with their annual dilemma: What will the kids do this summer?

The YMCA might have the answer they're looking for.

Unlike private or specialty camps, YMCA's are non-profit organizations. YMCA Camp Mason, for example, has some of the lowest prices in the tri-state area for both day and resident camp, and uses the money raised from its Annual Fund to make sure every kid has a chance to experience "the summer of a lifetime".

"Requests for aid have increased significantly over the last few years," says Don Jennings, the director at YMCA Camp Mason. "The good news is that we've set aside additional funds to keep up with demand. It's at the heart of our mission, really. Every kid should be able to go to camp."

And a summer at a YMCA camp is more than just a bargain.

"We measure success in two ways," says Jennings. "The first is delivering a safe, thoughtful, and enjoyable program that takes advantage of our unique location and facilities. The second - and this is the one that brings our families back year after year - is relationships. The real secret of camp - its true value, really - is that it teaches kids how to live well together, and make & keep good friends."

YMCA Camp Mason is preparing for its 112th season of summer camp in northwest New Jersey. A non-profit residential summer camp open to families of all backgrounds, Camp Mason maintains the YMCA's focus of Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility in all of its programs.
YMCA Camp Mason is a year-round facility located in Hardwick, NJ. Founded in 1900 and situated on 650 acres in the Delaware Water Gap, its programs serve more than 10,000 children, adults, and families annually.
