Camps & Outdoor Education

Y camps are for every child and youth in our communities.

Because camp can have a profoundly positive and lasting effect on children, we are dedicated to ensuring that as many kids as possible have access to a Y camp experience. 

Y camp programs blend fun and adventure in an environment of respect, honesty, caring, responsibility, and inclusion. Using the natural surroundings as the basis for our programs, Y camps keep children and youth actively engaged in a variety of outdoor programs from snowshoeing and cross country skiing in the winter to canoeing, swimming and rock climbing in the summer. Our camps offer a place of belonging where lifelong friendships are developed, and where children learn new skills in a safe, fun and supportive environment. 

Our Y camps are proud and longstanding members of the Ontario Camps Association and are committed to the best practices of YMCA camps in Ontario.
