YCH Day Camp

If you’re looking for a week full of fun, friendships, and adventure our Day Camp is the perfect place. YMCA Camp Henry provides a safe and supportive environment for kids to just be kids. Central to our program philosophy is the belief that spending time and having fun in an outdoor community creates an environment that allows participants to develop our five core values: Respect, Responsibility, Caring, Honesty, and Inclusiveness. Located in beautiful Point Pelee National Park, we offer a wide range of programs that provide campers with the opportunity to try new things, build friendships, and connect with the natural world. 

Please note that all Summer Camp Programs at YMCA Camp Henry have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and have been cancelled for the 2021 season.


There will be half-day excursions to different parts of the national park. Daily programs may include:

  • Archery
  • Cooperative Games
  • Nature programs
  • Crafts
  • Water Games
  • Swimming
  • Hikes
  • Biking
  • Beach Party
  • Geocaching
