YMCA, sometimes regionally called the Y, is a worldwide organization based in Geneva, Switzerland, with more than 64 million beneficiaries from 120 national associations.
YMCA Mission: To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. Core Values: Caring: to demonstrate a sincere concern for others, for their needs and well-being.
Y.M.C.A. stands for “Young Men’s Christian Association,” which is commonly associated with the gyms that often provide temporary housing to men. The Village People sing about the YMCA as a place where you can hang out with all the boys. “Y.M.C.A.” is a song by the American disco group Village People. It was released in 1978 as the only single from their third studio album Cruisin’.
Now the Y.M.C.A is evolving and is including women and children. Y.M.C.A is offering camps and other activities for children. YMCA Camp Greenknoll is more than just a day camp; they are a facility that offers campers ages 3-15 years a place where they can be themselves. They give campers the chance to build confidence through skill-building activities, positive developmental experiences and encouraging them to forge bonds with each other and staff. Campers experience a sense of achievement through opportunities in the outdoors and are welcomed to a physically and emotionally safe and stimulating environment.
Y.M.C.A wanted to award their staff with a plaque. A plaque to thank the staff for their service of dedication to the Y family and community. Y.M.C.A made a handprinted 8 x 10 poster with the name of the staff and the fingerprints of the children. Unlimited Signs, Designs, and Graphics then took this poster and laminated it, then mounted the poster to a plaque.
