Summer Day Camps 2021: Summary of camps

On this page, you will find the various In-person and Outdoor summer day camps that we have planned. We cannot wait to build lasting memories with your child this summer!

YMCA Day Camp has been reimagined to promote the health and safety of our campers, their families, and our staff team. We continue to work with provincial and local health authorities to ensure the safest possible camp experience. We will provide regular updates to camp families online and by email regarding any changes to camp plans, and additional COVID-19 safety measures. As always, if Day Camp is not able to operate, we will issue full refunds.
