Located in our licensed Child Care Centres, YMCA Summer Clubs allow children to enjoy a summer filled with endless opportunities to play and learn. Kids will build physical literacy and important life skills through fun indoor and outdoor activities, such as sports, exciting field trips, group games, and more! This season, children at select Summer Club locations can dig into nutritious and delicious catered lunches. Visit the Real Food for Real Kids website for more information about the LunchBox program.

YMCA Summer Day Camps offer engaging and interactive experiences that keep kids’ minds and bodies active over the summer. From the creative arts to adventures in the natural environment, campers will participate in a wide range of activities that promote the development of new skills and life-long memories.
