The YMCA’s goal is to have a Day Camp where everyone feels safe and included. Inclusion support is available for children with special needs and/or disabilities that are eligible and require assistance to successfully participate in all camp programming. Inclusion support is facilitated by our friendly inclusion counsellors (youth with at least one year of camp experience) and is offered at all day camp locations!
Camper and staff safety is our top priority and therefore it is important to acknowledge that there are limitations within certain YMCA locations, as well as limitations to the level of support our day camp inclusion staff can provide. Camper needs will be accessed individually, and some families may be recommended to alternative locations or programs, and at times family hired support may be required in order to ensure a successful camp experience.

A staff member will be in touch once your information is received.
