Volunteers Needed to Build YMCA Playground

The Door County YMCA is building a playground, and they need help from volunteers. On June 6, volunteers will build a great new place for kids to play in one day. The project is in partnership with KaBOOM!, the national nonprofit dedicated to giving kids the childhood they deserve by bringing play to those who need it most. The new play-space will be at Peterson Park, next to the Door County YMCA Sturgeon Bay facility.

In March, youth drew their dream playgrounds, which were translated into a custom-made design for the new playground. Community members and YMCA staff have been working to plan a fun, successful 200-person volunteer Build Day.

To sign up to volunteer for Prep Day (8 am – 5 pm, June 4) or Build Day (8 am – 3 pm, June 6), see the playground design, and learn more about the value of play, visit
