YMCA JT's Camp Grom Oyster Roast
Join us for the YMCA JT's Camp Grom Oyster Roast on September 14.
YMCA JT's Camp Grom is a day retreat developed especially for wounded veterans and their families, the families of fallen war heroes and children and adults with differing abilities. It is a special place where everyone in the family can spend time and participate, together. Unlike traditional camps, Camp Grom delivers a unique, integrated and adaptive day of activities surrounded by family and friends.
YMCA JT's Camp Grom offers a variety of adaptive & integrated outdoor and indoor adventure opportunities:
Lake for fishing
Zero-Entry Indoor Pool
Indoor Water Track
Outdoor lazy river
Quiet Sensory Room
Alpine Climbing Tower
As the only family and group facility of its kind on the East Coast, this amazing 70-acre, beach-style adventure is designed to welcome everyone. Wounded veterans, families of the fallen, and adults and children with differing abilities finally have a place to call their own and engage with each other in a safe and supportive environment totally focused on the possibilities becoming a reality!
Adventure activities have often been frustratingly out of reach for adults and children living with differing abilities. YMCA JT's Camp Grom will allow these individuals to take part in personal development activities, educational programs, and entertainment and social gatherings, sending participants home with a new sense of confidence—empowering them and improving their quality of life.
To bring adventure to all, we need your help!
This year the Y has two very important fundraising goals for YMCA JT’s Camp Grom:
First, the Y's Capital Campaign will help outfit YMCA JT's Camp Grom with the specialized equipment and furniture needed to create this unique adventure experience.
Second, the Y has a goal to raise $160,000, through the 2018 Annual Giving Campaign to support participant scholarships and programs this summer at YMCA JT’s Camp Grom.
Donating your time to YMCA JT's Camp Grom means sharing your talents and drive to giveback with those that appreciate it the most! We know that your time and talents are precious, and want every moment you spend with us giving back to be worthwhile.
