A park bench was dedicated to Colin R. MacLean Memorial Fund YMCA Camp Kresge in memory of Colin.
The Colin R. MacLean Memorial Fund was established in September 2018 to help people recovering from substance abuse disorders. This bench consecration marks a new adventure for the fund.
The fund will now provide scholarships to deserving children, allowing them to experience all that YMCA Camp Kresge has to offer. Colin MacLean was a camp counselor at YMCA Camp Kresge; there he enjoyed peace and nature, as well as the work with children and friends that he made along the way.
âIt truly is an honor to be able to celebrate Colin’s memory here at the YMCA of the Grand Wyoming Valley region,â said Jim Thomas, CEO of the YMCA of the Grand Wyoming Valley region. âThis park bench will serve as a constant reminder of Colin’s dedication to Camp YMCA Kresge and the impact the camp has had on his life. We are extremely grateful to the MacLean family for their commitment to this community. The support that Colin’s fund will provide will help children learn new skills and create lasting memories at camp each year.
