Support Our Cause & Impacts



Meeting Waters Y is now—as it has always been—a place of possibility and promise for all. From providing children enriching spaces after school and in the summer, to teaching them to be safe in and around water, to developing the leadership and confidence necessary to help them soar, our Y nurtures potential. We help all young people become their best possible self.

All children deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of adults who care about them and believe in their potential. We see every interaction with children and teens as an opportunity for learning and development—grounded in the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.

Kids deserve to come to camp, regardless of their circumstances, because what kids learn from camp can transform their lives. They learn to trust – in themselves and others. They meet new people and try new things. Most importantly, they have fun, make friends, and are safe while creating lasting memories in the magical place called Y Day Camp.

WE CAN’T DO IT ALONE.  We need your help to ensure that ALL YOUNG PEOPLE HAVE ACCESS to our enriching programs. Access includes the ability for parents to get their children to camp, which is why busing is so important. We bus from various locations up and down the Connecticut River Valley at no cost to parents. However, the cost of busing has increased tremendously over the years.

Please donate to our Reach Out to Youth Fund to support access to our enriching youth programs.. Your donation will be helping children and teens develop self-confidence, character values, and leadership skills in programs that build RELATIONSHIPS, ACHIEVEMENT, and BELONGING.
