Want to do something good for camp? Here’s how!
The YMCA makes camperships available to children from deserving low-income families, enabling them to benefit from a week at Camp Reed. These camperships reach children whose parents could not otherwise afford to send their child to camp.

YMCA Camp Reed Auction
18th Annual YMCA Camp Reed Auction & Virtual Fundraiser: October 14-17, 2020
The Camp Reed Auction has been a significant source of fundraising for Camp since its inception in 2002. Thanks to local Heroes like you, we have raised over $1.4 million since 2002. These funds have allowed us to send over 3,000 low-income kids to Camp; make significant facility improvements including cabins, docks, bath facilities; and to keep fees for all programs (traditional, CIT, and JC) accessible to our community.
No matter where you are, you can join us for Camp Reed’s virtual fundraiser this year! Due to COVID-19 risks and restrictions, Camp Reed’s 18th annual auction, scheduled for October 14 -17, 2020, is being reimagined as a virtual event. Traditionally, Auction funds have been used for scholarships and capital expenditures. We will be expanding the use of this year’s funds to help address operational expenses not covered by traditional camp program income. As we celebrate 105 years of operation during this landmark season, we rely on the support of our beloved alumni, family, and friends of camp to ensure that every child who wishes to attend camp has the opportunity to do so. Help us reach our goal of $105,000, so that Camp Reed can keep going strong for another 105 years!

Thank you to our amazing sponsors, donors, and attendees, whose support has allowed Camp Reed to continue to thrive and make a difference in our world…one child at a time!
YMCA Camp Reed Endowment Fund
Why Participate? What is it you remember most about YMCA Camp Reed? Was it sharing during Sticks Ceremony around the campfire at the end of the week, Critter Talk, Chapel or fun with campers and staff? We know Camp Reed has touched many lives and it is a unique experience that has a lasting impact. Now you have the opportunity to pass on these positive encounters for many more campers in the years ahead.
Our goal is to ensure the future of Camp Reed by building a designated endowment fund to support the powerful work of camp. As a beneficiary of the Camp Reed experience, you are uniquely qualified to recognize the potential that camp can offer to many in the years to come. Your support strengthens the foundation of Camp Reed by building long-range financial stability and ensuring that countless children can just be kids for a life-changing week at camp.
Contributions can be made in two ways: a gift today, or a future gift or both will be placed in the Camp Reed Endowment. Your endowment gift provides lasting resources by preserving the corpus of the gift intact and using the interest gained each year for either camperships or infrastructure improvements.
