At the Y, we believe that children learn best when their natural activity of play is encouraged. Our curriculum, YMCA Playing to Learn, offers programming focused on fostering a child’s enthusiasm and capacity for lifelong learning through active and quiet play experiences. Qualified YMCA educators will engage in play activities with your child that stimulate early learning while enhancing their social, emotional, and physical development.
For more than 50 years, the YMCA has strengthened communities across the Greater Toronto Area by providing child care programs that support and nurture the well-being of young children. Let us help your child build confidence and develop essential school readiness skills so that they can have a strong start to a great future.

Based out of the Toronto Sheppard YMCA, this day camp creates the perfect opportunity for indoor and outdoor fun. Our Camp day starts and ends as a large camp community (approximately 130 campers) in the front courtyard with opening and closing circle, before counselors break off and follow their daily schedule with their group of 10-12 campers for their specific program.
Campers will swim 3 times a week in the indoor pool, play sports and games in the gymnasium, and create crafts in the program room. Extended hours are available on site from 7:30am until 6:00pm at an additional fee of $15/week for AM, $25/week for PM or $40/week for both.
*Pick up and drop off at this location happens “Kiss & Ride” style off the Sheppard entrance. Just drive up to one of our camp staff, sign your camper in or out, and continue your day!
