Zoey's Y Story

Zoey has been attending Camp Roger for years, but her Camp Roger experiences would not have been possible without the Financial Assistance Program the YMCA offers. 

Zoey was shy and worried about being perceived as "goofy" by her fellow campers her first summer. She quickly learned that Camp Roger was a place where she could be herself and try new things without the judgement of other kids. Her second summer she jumped right into all of the camp activities without hesitation and set a fearless example for all the other campers. 

This year Zoey participated in a new leadership program, called Rising Stars, which helped develop team-building skills for two weeks. Zoey quickly became a leader among her peers, helping around camp and even leading songs in front of the entire camp. It has been rewarding to see Zoey gain confidence and discover her full potential throughout her years at Camp Roger.
