The 10th Anniversary Shader Kids Weekend

Thank you to all who attended our wildly successful and fun 10th Anniversary Shader Kids Weekend at Camp Chief Hector YMCA.  We had a record 167 attendees, including many families whose little ones had a fabulous introduction to CCHY and the Shader Kids event.

Many thanks, also, to all those who donated generously to our auction and to those who bid on items. Your support means we are able to continue to fund our Camper Sponsorships with both Kilcoo Camp and Camp Summit, as well as our scholarships for Camp Chief Hector YMCA staff. A big win for the West was taken on the ball hockey court, followed by a fun kids campfire and delicious banquet. Many thanks to all the volunteers and camp staff who make this event possible, as well to our amazing entertainment for the night “The Micks”.

It is hard to believe that it has been ten years since we started this event, and it would not be possible without all of your support. We feel so very grateful to have such a strong, supportive community of people who gather to remember our dear friend Tim, and to continue his legacy of supporting young people’s outdoor adventures. We look forward to continuing the tradition!
