Keeping You Safe

Keeping you safe is our first priority.  Here’s how we’ve enhanced your Y experience to help keep everyone as safe as possible at camp.

  • We’ve introduced daily screening protocols for all staff, parents/guardians, and campers
  • For our week-long programs, camper groups will remain together with the same counsellor the entire week
  • Extra cleaning and disinfecting measures will take place throughout the day

Face Mask and Coverings Bylaw

All of our in-person camp programs will require participants to wear face masks or coverings when indoors. If your camper does not have a face mask, one will be provided for them. Staff will also adhere to these guidelines when indoors.

Get more information about our updated policies and procedures by downloading our safety guidelines and the Ministry of Health's guidelines for summer day camps.

Family in kayaks on the lake

"We joke that we are city people, so during our family camp day, we experienced a number of family firsts: the first time we went canoeing, the first time we tried archery, our first campfire, and our first family bike ride. The YMCA had all of the resources we needed to have these experiences and do so safely. It truly felt like a curated outdoor experience tailored to our family."
