This summer, while you’re nearby at work, your kids will be creating new friendships and memories through sports, crafts, activities, and games. Choose from two convenient downtown summer day camp locations: Don Wheaton Family YMCA or the YMCA Family Resource Centre

All full-day camps include FREE Pre-Care (7:30–8:45 am) and FREE Post-Care (4:30–5:30pm)!

Camp isn't just a way to pass the summer — it's a life-changing experience! By building connections with other campers and YMCA staff, your child will be encouraged to reach for the best in themselves, and in others, every day. Helping young people grow up healthy, active, and engaged is why the Y exists.

YMCA Summer Day Camps offer children and youth the opportunity to participate in fun and engaging activities. Camps are designed to spark imagination and build confidence, independence, and communication skills. All participants will have the opportunity to create positive peer and role model friendships.

In accordance with YMCA Healthy Child Development principles, participants will learn physical literacy skills and complete daily physical activity requirements. Camps offer international activities, games, hands-on learning, skills development, craft activities, swimming, and more. 

YMCA members receive a discount on all summer camps!

    It's All About the Beads

    At YMCA day camps, Value Beads play an important role as a sign of character and personal achievement. As a form of recognition, Value Beads promote positive behaviour and are worn as a constant reminder of what we value as a camp community. Throughout the week, Value Beads are awarded to individuals for demonstrating friendship, caring, honesty, diversity, social inclusion, responsibility, respect, leadership, an excellence.
