Camp Piomingo has always reflected the ideals of the communities we serve.  Everyone is welcome at Camp Piomingo, and the values we teach cross all faiths and backgrounds. Every day we remind ourselves that we must strive to be caring, be honest in all we do, show respect to all others, accept responsibility and have faith in ourselves and others.  We value diversity, and diversity is inclusive, not exclusive.

 

 

 

OUR MISSION

To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

OUR CAUSE

At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.

OUR FOCUS

YOUTH DEVELOPMENT

Nurturing the potential of every child and teen. We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they really are and what they can achieve. That’s why, through the Y, millions of youth today are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.

HEALTHY LIVING

Improving the nation’s well-being In communities across the nation, the Y is a leading voice on health and well-being. With a mission centered on balance, the Y brings families closer together,encourages good health and fosters connections through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests. As a result, millions of youth, adults and families are receiving the support, guidance and resources needed to achieve greater health and well-being paid for their spirit, mind and body.

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Giving back and providing support to our neighbors. Whether developing skills or emotional well-being through education and training, welcoming and connecting diverse the demographic populations through global services, or preventing chronic disease and building healthier communities through collaborations with policymakers, the Y fosters the care and respect all people need and deserve.

The Y’s commitment to diversity, inclusion, and global (DIG) serves as a compass for the Y as it works alongside communities to drive social progress and positive social change addressing systemic racism and other forms of institutionalized bias. Learn about the Diversity, Inclusion, and Global (DIG) strategies offered through Y-USA. Integrating DIG/Equity principles, practices and strategy can help strengthen a Y by fostering institutional and societal equity.  Through more inclusive and equitable operating practices, and through authentic engagement with community members, YMCAs and community can better co-create relevant solutions in the form of programs and services.  Better community engagement and partnership allows YMCAs to reach and serve their increasingly diverse and changing communities.  They can do this as bridge builder partnering with change makers to create the communities we all want to live in – where everyone can reach their fullest potential with dignity and love. This is more relevant now than ever in the face of the COVID19 global health pandemic, the economic crises, and the increased awareness of the impact systemic racism has had in further marginalizing communities of color.

Equity is the guarantee of fair treatment, access, opportunity and advancement for everyone, where individuals are not at a disadvantage from achieving their potential because of their background or social position.

Equity requires intentionality around identifying and eliminating the institutional, systemic and societal barriers that have prevented the full participation of some groups (based on certain characteristics including ability, age, economic background, ethnicity, faith, gender, national origin, race or sexual orientation), and developing the solutions and support systems that are relevant to social structures, trends and emerging opportunities.
