Host an Exchange Student this July!

We are thrilled to partner with Youth Experience International (YEx) and welcome teenagers from Brazil to volunteer in Camp Rising Sun and Camp Outer Limits for the month of July. 

YEx has been sending kids to YMCA’s throughout the United States for more than a decade. We have the privilege of being the first Y in North Carolina to participate in the program! 

We are recruiting families to host for two or four weeks during the month of July. This an excellent opportunity to build friendships across cultures, break down barriers, and further the Y mission of global diversity and inclusion. The kids get to experience an American summer and you get to enrich your family life and the Y through cultural exchange.

Families must be a two adult household with at least one child and able to provide transportation to and from camp each day. For more information please contact Melinda Thomas at
