The YMCA of Beaufort County has received a $10,000 grant from YMCA of the USA to provide low-income families with opportunities to participate in and receive the health benefits of boating and fishing.
The money will also be used to raise awareness of the importance of protecting and conserving our aquatic resources. Specifically, the grant will be used to: Engage children and families in conservation education and outdoor recreational activities, such as fishing, kayaking, canoeing and sailing; provide training for teen counselors, staff and volunteers to teach and champion conservation, fishing and boating; and improve the health and well-being of participants by inspiring them to be active outdoors.
Fishing camps and kayaking camps are planned in the summer of 2011. Registration for these camps will begin April 1.
