FINANCIAL AID

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.

At the Y, no one has been turned away because of an inability to pay.

BEHIND THE NAME

Metacomet was the second son of Massasoit, a Wampanoag sachem who had managed to keep peace with the English colonizers of Massachusetts and Rhode Island for many decades. In time, he took the name King Philip to honor the relations between the colonists and his father and even purchased European-style apparel in Boston. As a sachem for several years, Metacomet witnessed increased contact and encroachment by white settlers. Much of this contact resulted in the humiliation of his people. He is known for King Philip’s War (1675-1678.)
