Camp Combe YMCA Advisory Board

The Camp Combe YMCA Board is a dynamic group of community-oriented individuals committed to the mission of the YMCA. They volunteer their time and expertise to advise the YMCA staff, make connections throughout the community, and raise funds for capital needs and camp scholarships.

The Program Committee focuses on special events. The biggest of these is the Fall Festival, but there are events in every quarter. They advise the staff on pricing, marketing, activities, and logistics. They also provide feedback on program quality and the effectiveness of new initiatives.

Financial Development 
The Financial Development committee runs the annual Strong Kids (Project 62) Campaign which raises funds for scholarships to deserving families that are struggling to afford camp for their children. The active campaign takes place each fall, but meets year-round to plan, recruit campaigners, and cultivate donors.

Get Involved
If you are interested in joining the board or one of the committees, contact Bonnie Fogarty at or by phone at 845-526-0808. New board members are inducted each winter, but they customarily begin their involvement at the committee level first.
