Camp Miller Donation Opportunities

As a non-profit charitable organization, YMCA Camp Miller can always use your help!  It is a core YMCA belief that no one should be turned away for their inability to pay. Because of this belief, we work hard to make sure youth of all ages get the chance to experience camp no matter what the need might be. Learn about our various initiatives below and decide where your donation may fit best, no matter the amount!

-Camp Miller 2017 Annual Support CAMPaign

Each year, our Annual Support CAMPaign serves as the main source of scholarships to send youth to summer camp. Gifts toward this campaign are used in the form of full and partial scholarship to campers and families that apply for them.

-148th Fighter Wing Campships

Together with an initiative through the Y-USA, Camp Miller works to provide scholarships to youth who have parents or family actively serving in the military, whether domestically or overseas. This gives these youth a chance to interact with others and gain new experiences without smaller family units having to worry about the costs of sending a kid to camp.

-Steve O’Neil Apartments Campship

Together with an initiative through the Y-USA, Camp Miller works to provide scholarship to you and families housed within the Steve O’Neil Apartments. Families living within these apartments are in the process of removing themselves from situations of poverty, homelessness, or domestic abuse. By providing youth from these backgrounds, they gain the opportunity to connect with the outdoors and experience everything camp has to offer no matter what background they may come from.

-Ty Taylor Campship Endowment

Ty Taylor in an individual who is fondly remembered by many members of the Camp Miller family in beyond. After his death in 2010, friends and family established the Ty Taylor Campship Endowment. Gifts to the endowment are kept in perpetuity and the earnings from this fund are used specifically for supporting campships for youth to Camp Miller in Ty’s name. Find out more here.

How to Donate

We are very proud to be an organization that gives back to our community.  Help us increase that number and send many more deserving youth to camp for an experience that will last a lifetime!

Any size donation is accepted and can be used in any way you wish to earmark it.  A donation of $475.00 will pay for a full campship.  Any donations for improvements made to camp are also accepted.
