Camps

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!

Child Minding

Moms and Dads, are you having trouble fitting fitness into your day? We provide a safe place for your child to learn and play while you enjoy one of our many group fitness classes, take a swim in the pool, or get stronger in the gym.

Child minding is for children 5 years and younger. For children 6 to 9 years old we offer Zoned In: a fun, activity filled program that will keep your child busy while you work out.

Parents are asked to sign their children in and out of the spaces and staff will check your children in by scanning their Children's Memberships upon your arrival so please ensure you always bring your child’s membership card with them. Both programs can be accessed on a drop-in basis for a maximum of 1½ hours each session.

Child and Youth Programs

At the YMCA, we don't know the meaning of the word "bored". Kids love participating in all our activities—like swimming, art, crafts, dance, games, and science experiments—so much that they don't want to go home. There's something fun for everyone.
