MCF members with children from Montecito Family YMCA

Montecito Family YMCA

The Montecito Community Foundation is pleased to present a grant to the Montecito YMCA to support the summer sports camp scholarships program, which subsidizes low-income youth enrolled in the day camps. The all-day, week-long camps provide hundreds of local working families with safe and rewarding summer enrichment programs for their children, helping to prevent “summer learning loss” through a specialized SCALED Learning™ curriculum. The project also fosters social connections and can reduce the isolation experienced by youth who might otherwise be left at home alone during the summer break while their parents are at work.
