One of the most critical components of our mission is to help young people reach their greatest potential. In order to fulfill that mission, we have to provide our children with the best: the best programs, the best staff and the best facilities.
We know everyone’s financial situation is different. Every gift, no matter the size, is an endorsement of our mission and a belief that children need Camp now more than ever. We hope you will consider giving to help ensure that future campers and staff experience the same level of excellence that Camp Greenville has always delivered. Together, we will continue to uphold the tradition and expand the vision of creating ‘magic on the mountain.’
Below are a couple of ways you can financially help Camp Greenville.
The Open Doors Campaign was created to help meet the pressing and emerging needs of getting campers with financial needs to YMCA Camp Greenville, and the 2020 campaign goal is $240,000.
The number one barrier to attending Camp Greenville is cost. Offering financial assistance to lower and middle income families allows us to attract children from all financial backgrounds and life experiences. In return, it makes the experience richer for every camper.

YMCA Camp Greenville has had several successful capital campaigns since its founding. Capital contributions provide the additional resources required to meet our facility needs, covering the majority of expenses related to major maintenance projects, storm recovery, critical facility renovations and the addition of new facilities.
Phase One: Concluded in December 2015, with the Camp community celebrating $5.3 million in generous donations. This campaign was established to strengthen safety at camp, improve conditions of existing buildings, and enhance Camp’s signature programs. Funds in phase one will be allocated for the following projects:
- Water / Sewer Infrastructure
- New Office and Welcome Center
- New Health Center
- Lodge, nature center and water front renovations
- Program Treehouse
To date 5.3 million has been raised. Donations have been from individuals, foundations, companies and corporate supports with a love of camp. Donations are still be accepted for additional initiative elements for the Heart of Camp.
