An exciting summer is on the way at the YMCA of Greater Halifax/Dartmouth! The best part of the summer holidays is filling your day with adventure, friends, and endless fun and that’s just what the YMCA has planned this summer!

The YMCA Summer Day Camps are a place to meet new friends, reconnect with old pals, try new activities, and simply have fun! Your day will be filled with sports, games, activities, arts and crafts, and even indoor swimming! Each camper will have an opportunity to swim each day of camp in the beautiful YMCA’s state-of-the-art Aquatic Centre.

You will have so much fun in this beautiful facility that you will want to come back again. You can! Each family of a registered camper gets a 1-week YMCA Family Membership!


The YMCA of Greater Halifax/Dartmouth has been a cornerstone of our community since 1853. They have helped generations of people come together to build ‘body, mind, and spirit’ and they continue to strive to create stronger, healthier communities through experiences that last a lifetime.

The YMCA plays an integral part in ensuring equity and inclusion amongst all participants, especially children, and youth. They are committed to providing the camp experience for all children regardless of economic circumstances. There are many day camp spots available to ensure no child is turned away, please inquire about financial assistance.
