"The Metro YMCA wants every child to have the opportunity to flourish physically, emotionally and cognitively over the summer," Metro Y Director of Development Lisa Kelly said.

The Y on Monday launched a two-week campaign to send 200 more children to camp this summer.

Last year, the fund helped to make camp a reality for 305 children.

Kids spend the day tumbling in gymnastics, running in the gym, swimming in our pool and creating fun crafts.
