We cannot thank the community enough for helping make our annual Christmas tree fundraiser a success. In just 8 days, we sold 600 trees; the profits of which will be applied toward families who would otherwise not be able to afford camp.
We're pleased to share that last summer, more than 150 children traveled from Alexandria to Kilmarnock, Virginia to enjoy a week at YMCA/APYC Camp Kekoka. And with an additional 140 campers from locations outside of Alexandria, we had more kids at camp this summer than we have in the past 8 years! Below are some of our favorite photographs from last years program.
For over 60 years, the Alexandria Police Youth Camp has been offering children in Alexandria a place to meet friends, try new exciting adventures and participate in character building activities.
Skiing, knee boarding, tubing, kayaking, sailing, fishing, you name it
and we get crazy with it! Windsurfing? We got it! Swimming pool,
recreation hall, archery, campfires? We got it! Character development,
team work, better self-esteem, WE LEAD IT!
Our mission is to own and operate a camp for children, where they can receive wholesome recreation, moral, physical, mental, cultural and civil training. Since 1947, we have sent more than 20,000 children to Kilmarnock, Virginia to have the time of their lives. And with our great relationship to the Peninsula YMCA, we look forward to helping thousands more!
