Every summer, 150 children from low-income working families in Lawrence and Haverhill enjoy a special experience at the YWCA summer day camp. Camp Y-Wood is a 22-acre, grassy, “electronics-free zone,” located on Captain’s Pond in Salem, N.H.  But this past summer, there are no happy Y-Wood Campers. No happy Camp Director. No happy counselors. No learning about nature. No sports and games in the grass. No Red Cross swim lessons. No learning to paddle on Captain’s Pond . . . No Camp Y-Wood.

Sadly, Camp Y-Wood was not open this past summer due to damage from last winter’s weather. Heavy trees fell on two buildings during winter storms and more trees fell throughout the campsite necessitating many repairs. We must raise an additional $40,000 in order to complete roof repairs, replace plumbing fixtures, and replace old failed underground pipes on the property.
