Bill Carstens forever changed the face of YMCA Camp Marston in Julian, California! Demonstrating his commitment to youth development, Bill sponsored three new camper-lodges that can house 72 happy campers, new athletic fields, a platform tent village, lakefront gazebo, underground infrastructure and more. He also established the Bill Carstens Endowment Fund, ensuring that no child is turned away from experiencing one of Bill’s passions – overnight camp for kids.
The Carstens Family of Funds has also supported the “Camp Reach for the Sky” program for over a decade. This inspiring program provides children with cancer a joyful, accepting week at overnight camp. Dedicated volunteers, including the same doctors and nurses that treat these children during the year, rally to provide this precious children a week of fun, laughter and acceptance.
