17.5% of North Carolinians live in poverty. For children under 18, the number is even higher - one in four battle poverty. Simmons YMCA Summer Camp serves families in the East Charlotte area. Children have an opportunity to learn and grow through our carefully planned and mission-centered programs that teach them tomake healthy choices, build realtionships, develop skills and become servant leaders while having fun.
Over 80 percent of the Simmons YMCA campers receive financial assistance. Our hope is to create a safe place that will provide quality and value-filled programming. For kids under the age of 12, drowning is the second cause of accidental death. At the Y, we believe in changing these odds. We believe in changing these odds. We believe in encouragement from a caring role model and learning ot swim as a life-saving skill. Through our partnership with Albemarle Road Elementary School, we have established a swim academy to bring youth to the YMCA after school for this lifesaving and confidence-building opportunity. 100 percent of this program is funded through these designated funds raised in our community.
