Fred McIlhattan Scholarship

YOUR GIFT WILL CHANGE LIVES LOCALLY

The Fred McIlhattan Camp Coffman Scholarship Fund was established in 2021 at the Scenic Rivers YMCA. The YMCA created the fund in Fred’s memory with his wife Teresa, and their children Andrea and Fredrick Jr.

Fred was passionate about serving his community in ways that left an impact that went far beyond his lifetime. Fred enjoyed being outdoors and investing in the youth of the community. His combined love for the outdoors and children, led him to invest his own time and talents to YMCA Camp Coffman.

SCHOLARSHIP GUIDELINES

The Fred McIlhattan Camp Coffman Scholarship will provide opportunities for local youth to attend YMCA Summer Day Camp.  The fund will provide financial aid to youth with low income or family circumstance that may prevent them from attending camp.

Scholarship assistance is available through the Clarion County YMCA and Oil City  YMCA. Parents can fill out an  application requesting help with summer camp for youth ages 5-12.
