Union Beach & Camp Speers YMCA

Thanks to the generosity of the Quest Diagnostics Foundation and community residents, the Borough of Madison has been sending 30 youngsters from Union Beach to summer camp at Speers YMCA Camp all expenses paid since the summer of 2013. This program which was started as  a response to the devastation from Hurricane Sandy to give the children of Union Beach the opportunity to be kids again, learn new skills and return to the school community and  their families refreshed. Many of the children who previously attended camp as part of this program are now peer leaders at Union Beach Memorial School and role models for their classmates.
