Edmonton Summer Camp Guide Wood Buffalo Summer Camp Guide

YMCA Summer Camps are designed to spark the imagination, confidence, independence, and communication skills of all our campers.  All participants will have the opportunity to create positive peer and adult friendships. Through YMCA Healthy Child Development participants will learn physical literacy skills and complete daily physical activity requirements.  

Our Edmonton and Wood Buffalo summer camps and day camps will offer international activities, games, hands on learning, develop skills, create crafts, swimming, and more. 

We motivate our campers to practice the YMCA values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, Responsibility, Diversity, and Social Inclusion through our bead program.  Campers have the ability to earn Value Beads throughout their week in camp and add them each day.

Camps are conveniently located in Edmonton and Wood Buffalo centres, with FREE before and after camp care to make drop off and pick up easy for you:

    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.
