YMCA Camp Glenburn - Supporting Great Outdoor Summer Experiences!


J.D. Irving, Limited (JDI) is proud to support the local YMCA's Camp Glenburn and their Revitalization Project.



Camp Glenburn has been providing amazing summer experiences for kids for over 90 years, and the same dining hall has been used for over 60.   Materials donated by J.D. Irving and KENT helped to build a new dining hall that will accommodate all campers and staff throughout the summer and is expected to feed over 2000 people annually. The camp revitalization also involved updating cabins, the sports field, and re-purposing several buildings to give them a new life.   Mulch around the camp and the wooded trails was donated by JDI's Sussex Sawmill.

"We're thankful for all the generous donors that helped build this building; J.D. Irving, Kent, and camp alumni," says Ben Barbeau, Manager of Camping and Outdoor Education with the YMCA of Saint John. "We can't wait to see all those happy kids in here!"
