Creating Memories and Friendships that last a Lifetime Since 1968
**After careful consideration and much deliberation, the Board of Directors of the YMCA of the Palm Beaches has reluctantly decided to cancel the upcoming summer season at Camp McConnell. After a needed change in our YMCA association's executive leadership, earlier this year, it has been discovered that insufficient timing and budgeting for needed resources will not allow for the necessary capital improvements and personnel to adequately run the camp. This was a painstaking decision made only after careful analysis of available resources, visiting the camp, and speaking to stakeholders at all levels. The better news is our new executive leadership is currently hard at work rebuilding and implementing positive changes that will make our YMCA much stronger for the future. Any submitted registration deposits will be promptly refunded. We thank you for your understand during this time of restructuring and we will keep you updated on our YMCA's progress as we move onward and upward.**
