YMCA Camp Sloper - Capital Campaign

Providing for the Next Generation


YMCA Camp Sloper has embarked on some significant upgrades and improvements in the last year thanks to the generosity of so many supporters!  

To date, we have completed the following capital projects:

  • Installed over 850 feet of sewer lines throughout the property
  • Constructed the Bradley & Leila Barnes Spray and Splash Park
  • Built the new Calvanese Foundation Restrooms and new handicap assessable bathrooms attached to McLeod Pavilion
  • Renovated the Knight Family Pavilion on the West Coast of the camp (formally Turtle Pavilion
  • Complete just over 65% of the Save Sloper Pond Dredging Project

All of theses improvements have been extremely helpful and very well received by our camp families this past summer. WE were also able to open up the Bradley & Leila Barnes Spray and Splash Park on the weekends for Y-Members and Southington and Cheshire residents, averaging over 100 visitors a day on the weekends. THANK YOU so much to all of our donors who have helped make these projects a reality! 

We are about to begin PHASE 2 of our YMCA Camp Sloper Capital Campaign and still need some additional support and donations to bring these projects to life!

Phase 2 of the YCS Capital Campaign includes:

  • Construction of the Soccodato Family Pavilion in the lower field next to the Ninja Warrior Course
  • Completion of the Save Sloper Pond Dredging Project which includes:
    • Removal of the remaining sediment on the bottom of the pond
    • Installation of the Draw Down Valve for depth and vegetation control
    • Construction of new culverts on the inlets into the pond
    • Completion of an underwater berm to help with collection and containment of silt as it comes into Sloper Pond
    • Restoration of the disturbed areas and relocation site for the fill
  • Design and construction of a new Camp Office/Infirmary with some attached year-round program space
