Camp Speers YMCA is pleased to announce that through the generous support of The Westfield Foundation, Westfield families may apply for camperships to help send their children and teens to summer overnight camp this summer.
“Our roots are buried deep in the Westfield community,” notes Cherie Hammond, Director of Development. “Camp is named for James M. Speers – a prominent Westfield businessman and civic leader who was instrumental in starting the Camp in 1948 as the first racially integrated YMCA Camp in the US.”
The funds provided by The Westfield Foundation will support Westfield children and teens participation in the summer resident camp program at Camp Speers YMCA. For over 66 years we’ve provided Camperships to deserving children, teens and families from Westfield and around the world. This donation will help us to ensure that we will never turn away a child from the experience that will transform his/her life because there wasn’t enough funding.
