Camp Appeal

“Keep your face always toward the sunshine and shadows will all fall behind you.”

YCS children have spent their lives in the shadows
of traumatic events and unhappy memories.

While we cannot change their past, We can help them to see a brighter future.

You can help.

Give these children the chance to put their shadows behind them…

Support YCS Summer Camp and turn 2 weeks into a lifetime of happy memories!


Since 1918, YCS has been helping at-risk and
special needs children heal their hearts and rebuild their lives.
Whether a child has suffered trauma, abuse or neglect,
or has special needs from autism that are not being met,
YCS offers hope for a promising future.

YCS provides group homes, home care, education & more
to over 7,000 children and young adults and their families
facing the challenges of trauma and autism each year.

While YCS provides the care, you provide the critical support.
