Did you know that you don’t need evidence to report abuse—only reasonable suspicion?

There are three reasons you should report – a child discloses that they are being abused, you discover abuse happening, or you suspect that something is not right. Disclosure, Discovery, Suspicion.

Everyone deserves an adventure.

In our most unique community collaboration yet, the YMCA of South Hampton Roads has teamed up with the Virginia Gentlemen Foundation to create a landmark new adventure park for those who need it most.

JT’s Camp Grom isn’t just any camp. It’s a 70-acre retreat developed for wounded warriors and their families, the families of fallen war heroes—Gold Star Families, and children and adults with differing abilities. It’s a special place where everyone in the family can spend time and participate together!

Like all Y camps, Camp Grom will deliver all the classic outdoor offerings: apline climbing tower, kayaking, swimming, archery and other fun fitness activities—with staff to help guide all campers and their families through their exhilarating YMCA camp experience.

This 70-acre site in Virginia Beach boasts an aquatic center, an outdoor lake with fishing, a gym/auditorium, picnic shelters, a sports field, a water spray park and so much more. JT’s Camp Grom hopes to welcome thousands of Hampton Roads adults and children with differing abilities each year, plus serve the wounded veterans and Gold Star famliies that live in our area.
