 What are Camp YMCA day camps?

Camp YMCA camps take place during school and summer breaks at all six YMCA locations across Calgary.

During multi-activity camps, participants will play sports, sing songs, get artsy, and participate in a variety of traditional camp games, both in and outside the YMCA facility. They’ll play court sports, scale walls, and take on the pool! Climbing, art, or swim options (with lesson) are available with some camps and some participants will even explore philanthropy!  Our camps include activities to help develop physical literacy. Learn more!

Half-day, full-day and week-long camps are offered at all six Calgary YMCA locations. All week-long camps include an off-site field trip (such as the Calgary Corn Maze, Calgary Zoo, or Camp Riveredge. (Off-site destination details are sent to parents one-week prior to camp).

Visit our Camp Riveredge and Camp Chief Hector pages to learn more about our fully outdoor camps.
