Bringing Our Cause To Life

B.R. Ryall YMCA Camp Pryde Campers reading to children at the Glen Ellyn Library

The YMCA believes that lasting personal and social change only comes about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. That’s why, at the Y, strengthening community is our cause. B.R. Ryall YMCA’s Camp Pryde has been spending the Summer bringing that cause to life. As the future leaders of tomorrow, Camp Pryde Campers are learning about giving back to their community. Every Friday in July, Campers will be “reading buddies” to ESL children at the Glen Ellyn Library. They will be volunteering with SCARCE, School & Community Assistance for Recycling & Composting Education, ADOPT Animal Rescue in Naperville as well as Supplies 4 Success which is affiliated with Glen Ellyn school district 89 where they will be organizing school supplies for those in need. Fostering a sense of social responsibility early on helps build stronger communities.
