The Y’s Menettes of Westmoreland is a local service group that has been meeting every first and third Monday for more than 30 years. The group is a part of the “Y” movement (Y’s Men, YMCA, YWCA) and has been actively engaged in changing the lives of youth who live in challenged communities through various programmes. They have been hosting youth summer camps for more than twenty (20) in our local community. Many children who attend summer camp at our Resource Centre today are second generation campers as their parents also attended camps here before the Centre was re-constructed.

On behalf of the Source Staff and Volunteers, the Y’s Menettes of Westmoreland, and most importantly, the 140+ youth that attended camp we wanted to thank our amazing sponsors for their thoughtful and generous donations. Our two summer camps, a major highlight for our youth, would not be possible without these donations. Some organizations directly sponsored youth and paid for their camp fees. Other organizations contributed food, arts and crafts supplies, and other supplies.
Thank you for making our camps possible and for supporting programmes that serve and impact our youth.

Activities included: Arts and crafts, dance lessons (Auntie Jackie and Legend Squad), basic computer classes, HIV prevention with Grassroots Soccer, life skills activities, special guest speakers from the Ministry of Health, HEART NTA, and JMBIC, sports day, and a talent show.
Big ups to our volunteers and donators who made it all possible. Without their selfless, generous support, we would not be able to host these camps. Thank you!
Last summer the Source, in partnership with the Y’s Mennette’s of Westmoreland, hosted two youth camps with the purpose of inspiring youth to think about their futures. The success of our camps was due to the combination of amazing volunteers, generous donations, and scholarships from businesses and organizations. Without this support, camp would not be possible.
