We understand that you might want to give a gift to one of our staff members after their week with your camper. However, tipping of individual staff members is not permitted. You can show your appreciation though by making a donation to our “Kids to Camp” Scholarship Fund. Every summer YMCA Camp Collins offers scholarships and financial assistance for families who otherwise could not afford to send their children to camp.
Thanks to generous donations throughout the year, monies raised through our annual Reflecting Camp’s Glow event, and unspent camp store deposits, each year we raise over $110,000 to help send children to camp. For more information please contact the Camp office or visit our website to learn how you can help send a child to camp and make a donation on-line. We also want to thank our camper families, YMCA Supporters and community members who us give kids the opportunity to experience the benefits and fun of Camp.
