Thanks in part to the generous financial and in-kind support of several community businesses and organizations, the YMCA recently concluded its second successful summer of outdoor and environmental programming at Bates Allen Park in Kendleton, Texas.  At a recent visit of the program known as YMCA Camp Cloud, Fluor Representative Barbara Jones presented the staff and participants of the program with a $10,000 check to help support the costs of running the 10 week program.   “Fluor has a commitment to responsible stewardship of the environment and supports programs like YMCA’s Camp Cloud that focus on conservation, restoration and beautification of natural resources and habitats, and environmental education.” stated Barbara Jones, Fluor Community & Public Affairs Manager.

In addition to the financial support from Fluor, the YMCA Camp Cloud program was supported by many other donors and partners.  Key funding partners included Minute Maid, Oyster Creek Rotary Club, Sprint Fort Bend County Landfill and the YMCA Camping Services Board.  In-Kind and partnership support for the summer program came from the Texas AgriLife Extension Service, the Fort Bend County Heritage Unlimited Museum, the City of Kendleton, Fort Bend County Precinct 1, and Fort Bend County Parks & Recreation.
