YMCA Calgary > About


Ever since its inception in 1902, YMCA Calgary has been a hard working charitable organization that responds to the needs of Calgarians. YMCA Calgary has evolved into a vibrant charity where thousands of Calgarians are involved each year through health and wellness programs, leadership, and community outreach programs, child care, and day and overnight camps.

Guided by four core values of honesty, caring, respect and responsibility, YMCA Calgary strives to offer quality programs and services that give children, youth and adults the opportunity to belong, grow, thrive and lead.

YMCA Calgary has seven health and wellness facilities with one more opening in the SE quadrant in 2019, five child development centres with licensed child care, two outdoor camp sites and over 60 community program sites serving all quadrants of the city. These spaces and programs allow YMCA Calgary to deliver programs, services and opportunities to help the Calgary community connect with others, build life-long skills, and keep active and healthy.


There are 51 YMCAs across Canada that offer programs and services tailored to each community’s needs. Together, 2 million people are served in more than 1000 communities across Canada.
