YMCA Camp Sloper - Capital Campaign

Providing for the Next Generation


As you may have heard and seen recently, YMCA Camp Sloper is about to embark on some major upgrades and improvements! While we have had some very generous donations, we have a little more to do to make these projects a reality!  


Here is an overview of where things stand with the YMCA Camp Sloper Capital Campaign:

YCS Capital Campaign Overview:

  • $4.5 Million dollars worth of capital improvement at YCS are planned: Save Sloper Pond dredging project, new bathrooms and changing rooms, a splash pad, a new pavilion and infrastructure improvements
  • $3-million is coming from the State of CT for the Save Sloper Pond Dredging Project and Waterfront Improvements
  • $750k that our YMCA has committed to put into the projects from our reserves
  • $750k we need to raise to complete the projects above
  • Of the $750k we need to raise, we have:
  • $280k raised and/or pledged to date
  • $155k planned to come in from special events (portions of FIBJ, Sloper Plunge and others) and our camp improvement fees over the next 4 years
  • $315k left to fundraise for to get these projects to the finish line…

Our YCS Capital Campaign is now in the public phase which means we are asking any and all supporters to help out if they can! As one of our camp families, you have been some of our biggest supporters and hopefully you would be willing to help.
