Summer Day Camps

Enhance your child or youth's potential by introducing them to positive opportunities this summer at the YMCA. We help them develop lifelong routines of active living and positive nutritional choices while they have lots of fun. We develop our community's future leaders.

 

Inclusive Summer Programs

Inclusive Summer Programs are available for participants with and without disabilities. Participants of all abilities will gain new skills, challenge personal limits and have fun. YMCA Inclusive Summer Programs have a structure and routine of active living and recreation. Participants will enjoy outdoor activities, sports and drama activities, swimming, outings into the community, crafts, science experiments and more.

There are 15 reserved spots a week for Autism Resource Centre (ARC) members (Downtown location only). There are also spots available at both Downtown and Northwest locations for participants with disabilities who are not ARC members. Participants with disabilities and ARC members are expected to schedule an ‘intake interview’ with our Camp Director. 

All other participants can register at the front desk of either YMCA location.
