At Hands In 4 Youth, we’ve learned a very important lesson over our first 95 years: for the children who come to our Camp Vacamas, EVERY SUMMER COUNTS. By clicking the donate link below, in 2019 you'll help more children come to camp for the first time, and more return for another summer that counts.

Hands In 4 Youth provides hundreds of children with the opportunity to attend sleepaway summer camp, combining traditional camp fun with hands-on educational programs. At Camp Vacamas, children as young as 6 begin a journey of learning, personal growth and self-discovery, and as they grow with us, our impact grows with them. Their journeys begin with a scholarship to attend Camp Vacamas, and those scholarships begin with you
