How You Can Support Camp

Being a charitable organization often means sacrificing the little things in order to keep the program running. Though there are many items that the YMCA could really use in our operation of Silver Lake Camp, funding isn’t always available to purchase them. You can greatly assist with our mission by contributing to our wish list of items, or by providing professional services or work parties for projects. Below are some of the items needed (please…they must be in very good condition) and services required to help with camp operations. Support of this nature is called gifts in kind and could qualify for a charitable receipt.

If you are able to assist with any of the following items, or you have a team of volunteers that want to support a camp clean-up day or project, please call 250-764-9621 ext 304 or e-mail We thank you for your support!
