Think back to your childhood. We all have those special summertime memories that stand out and stick with us. Riding bikes, drinking ice cold water from hoses (hands up, kids of the 80s), making new friends, and late bedtimes. That’s what being a kid was all about, and the YMCA celebrates adventure, exploration, and friendship through their outstanding summer camp programs. At a YMCA camp, there are no classrooms or cliques, no homework or tests, and no screens! Instead, there are opportunities for self-discovery, growth, skill building, and connecting with peers.
The YMCA of Greater Vancouver operates action-packed day camps at several locations throughout the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. With so many day camps to choose from there’s bound to be one practically in your backyard. Day campers (aged 6 to 12 years) enjoy a ton of great activities such as sports, games, and crafts, and spend lots of valuable time outdoors. The camps build confidence, leadership, and environmental awareness. YMCA prides themselves on designing programs to challenge the campers, help them uncover their leadership abilities, and put them on the path to reaching their potential.
Financial Assistance: We all know that raising kids isn’t exactly easy on the bank account, especially during this challenging time. As a charity, the YMCA is committed to fostering a sense of belonging and connection and want to ensure that financial constraints don’t limit a child’s ability to participate in camp. That’s why the YMCA Financial Assistance (YFA) program is available to those who are interested in sending their child to camp but can’t afford to do so. Learn more here.
If you are hesitating to register your child because you work crazy hours, don’t worry! The YMCA’s camp hours take that into consideration and there is even some transportation assistance for some of the locations—they really have thought of everything.
