Do you love the outdoors?  Our goal is to provide every child with the opportunity to experience adventure in an outdoor setting.  Exploration of nature increases children’s creativity and imagination while developing an appreciation for the world around them.  Participants will enjoy scavenger hunts, playing games, hiking, creating crafts, survival activities, making friends, and having fun!

    It's All About the Beads

    At YMCA Day Camp, value beads play an important role as a sign of character and personal achievement.  Beads at camp promote positive behaviour, and are worn as a constant reminder of what we value as a camp community.  Throughout the week, beads are awarded to individuals for demonstrating the YMCA core values of friendship, caring, honesty, diversity, social inclusion, responsibility, respect, leadership, and excellence.
