YMCA strong kids campaign financial assistance

We don't turn anyone away.

YMCA donors and partners help make it possible for us to make sure everyone can participate in YMCA programs. If financial circumstances are limiting your ability to participate, you may be eligible for financial assistance. Licensed child care is also eligible for government subsidy.

Camp isn't just something to do when school's out — it's a life-changing experience! Flags are captured, friendships are forged, and somewhere in between, children discover themselves.

As Canada's largest camp provider, we deliver a unique blend of quality programs that build confidence, improve social skills, and foster independence and leadership. 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 — all while having fun!
