Hudson, WI—The YMCA of the North, a leading nonprofit dedicated to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, and Royal Credit Union Foundation co-host the fourth annual Prairie Burn Music Festival on Saturday, September 15. Proceeds benefit Twin Cities YMCA Camp endowments, making life changing camp experiences accessible to all for many years to come.
The fourth annual Prairie Burn Music Festival at Camp St. Croix in Hudson, Wisconsin, will feature 11 live music acts, including Now, Now, jeremy messersmith, PaviElle, Wisini, and Brother Ali, as well as camping hosted by REI, food trucks and camp games and activities for all ages. All net proceeds will help ensure every kid has the chance to experience camp.
“Everyone should go to camp because it teaches you to show respect to everyone, even if you’re different from them,” said eight-year old Damien from the Boys Outdoor Leadership Development program at Camp St. Croix.
”Time spent in nature is so valuable and it’s deeply rewarding to see so many more kids attending camp, who wouldn’t otherwise have been able to without the financial support made possible by this music festival,” said Jillian Nodland, Camp St. Croix community board member and co-chair of the Prairie Burn Music Festival.
“The YMCA connects everyone in our community with opportunities to grow by working to eliminate barriers to participation in our programs,” said Glen Gunderson, president and CEO of the YMCA of the North. “Events like the Prairie Burn Music Festival and our partnership with the Royal Credit Union Foundation raise funds so that campers in need of financial assistance can learn and lead at camp.”
