Day Camps

Let's spend summer together

Your children will probably be too busy having fun to even realize that our activities are focused upon three main themes:

  • Development of self-confidence and autonomy;
  • Adoption of healthy lifestyle habits;
  • Community spirit that is present in all our camps.

We do things differently! Come see why YMCA day camps are the perfect choice this summer.

The activities that are selected and led by the campers promote decision-making, co-operation and problem solving. They also nourish the association between physical activity and fun, a habit that will follow campers all of their lives.

All YMCA camps are certified by the Quebec Camp Association (ACQ) and therefore meet more than 60 different standards regarding safety, training, supervision, programming, environment and nutrition. We are proud to have a team of counsellors aged 18 and over.
