Conveniently located across 45 YMCA locations across the GTA, YMCA Summer Day Camps offers new experiences, skill building, a sense of community and lasting friendships — in conservation and urban settings while allowing campers to return home each evening. Busing and extended hours are available across the city to support your family’s busy schedule! With over 65 different programs to choose from, I am sure they have a camp that captures your child’s interests! All camps fall under the following categories:
“Every day is a new adventure at YMCA Day Camps”
If this is your first time sending your kids off to camp you may be wondering what to send them off with:
What not to bring?
Electronics, jewellery, toys etc…
Oh no! We’re running late for camp drop off!
Late arrivals to camp are accommodated but can be very disruptive to the camp day, especially since the absent camper call goes out shortly after the day begins, swimming may happen at any point of the day and maybe off-site, some sites take nature walks and may be out on a trail, etc. If it can be avoided, that is ideal.
If not possible to be avoided, camp staff will welcome the family, locate the camper’s camper group, and deliver the camper there to begin their day of fun! If their camp group is out of range for easy delivery of the camper, we’ll match the camper’s interest to a group that is in range and place them there until their group arrives back
Did you know The Y also offers extended care?
The YMCA offers extended hours locations across the GTA that may open as early as 7:00 AM and end as late as 6:00 PM. Find out if your bus stop or camp location has extended hour options by clicking here.
