YMCA says thank you to Beaufort community

The summer excitement has begun at the Wardle Family YMCA. The Y currently has over 250 children enrolled in summer camp and 200 children participating in swim lessons.

The YMCA wants to extend a huge thank-you to the Beaufort community for their generous support in this year’s Annual Scholarship Campaign.  Through these contributions, the YMCA was able to award $66,766 in financial assistance to over 150 children attending summer camp and another $9,680 teaching children to swim.

“Our summer camp program continues to grow year over year,” says Kaylin Caron, Childcare Director at Wardle Family YMCA. “With a developing program comes higher expenses and I want to personally express my gratitude to all donors.

The YMCA is a charitable organization open to people of all abilities, ages, beliefs, cultures, faiths and incomes. If you would like to sponsor a child this summer, please either donate online at www.ymcabeaufortcounty.com or mail your check to 1801 Richmond Ave, Port Royal, SC 29935.
