Winter Break Day Camps

Need some help to keep your kids busy and active during the Winter break? YMCA is excited to offer daily day camps from December 23rd to January 3rd. Your kids will make new friends while enjoying activities like art, gym time, group games, and recreational swimming. Please call your branch for more information.

Shawnessy YMCA Update

At this time, the Shawnessy YMCA facility is still being used as a site for flood evacuation. We will remain closed as we wait to hear whether we are able to operate as normal and allow access to the facility. This means that we will not open at 5:30am tomorrow morning.

We appreciate your patience and will update you as soon as possible.
