I HEART CQE
Camp plays a big part in building healthy communities and providing camping experiences for youth regardless of their background, beliefs, or abilities. At the YMCA, we believe that everyone, regardless of their financial circumstance, deserves the chance to access our programs and services.
Last year, more than 192,000 participants turned to us for help, looking for a safe, welcoming place to engage in activities that improve their lives and help them achieve their goals. Every dollar donated to the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign directly supports kids and families in your community.
Camp builds strong kids who build strong communities. Overnight camp experiences give children and youth the opportunity to build resilience and confidence, learn new skills, and deepen their connections to others and the natural world.
CQE is not just an island.
It is a place where kids can just be kids.
CQE is not just a cabin.
It is a place where kids make lifelong friendships.
CQE is not just a camp.
It is a place where kids learn to become leaders.
