YCares Financial Assistance: At the Y, we know that every child can benefit from camp. We also know that not all children have what they need to thrive. That’s why together, with the generous support of our donors, we provide camp scholarships for families who need us most. If your family needs assistance, let us help. At the Y, no one is turned away because of an inability to pay.

Behind the Name
“Wampanoag” is defined as “People of the Dawn,” which alludes to how living on the eastern coast made them the first people to see the sun rise every morning. Wareham’s native name is “Nepinnae Kekit”, which translates to “summer home.” Historically, Wampanoag people lived in this area during the summer months to fish and have access to waterways, and it remains a part of Wareham culture, as it is used on the town seal along with an image of a Wampanoag canoe.
