YMCA Summer Day Camps Update (May 29, 2020)

After careful consideration based on the latest COVID-19 developments and recommendations from the provincial government and public health, we have decided to cancel our previously scheduled 2020 summer day camp programs. We know that this is very disappointing news, however, we made this decision now to give our families as much notice as possible. All families who have paid camp fees will receive a full refund.

We know how significant the impact of this news is to campers, parents and our staff, but it is clear that our current summer day camp model does not allow for the recommended physical distancing guidelines from public health officials.

We are still working to envision what type of day camp programming that we may be able to offer this summer, and we hope to have more to share on those options in the coming weeks. Once we receive more precise and final information from our public health officials, we will send out communications and inform you of the next steps. Our priority is to support the health and safety of our campers, their families and our staff.

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions, by email at Please understand that the volume of emails may be higher than usual and we will connect back as soon as we can.


Camp Presqu'ile Update (May 22, 2020):

Registration for Camp Presqu'ile has been closed due to the Government of Ontario's decision to cancel all overnight camps due to the coronavirus. It is a difficult situation, and although we will miss seeing all our campers this summer, the safety of our participants and staff is our utmost priority. Thank you for your patience during these unprecedented times.

Refunds will be processed for all Camp Presqu'ile registrations. We are working with our service provider and will update families on timing of refunds as soon as we know.

From all our Staff/Rotarians we wish you a very safe summer with the promise that we will see you again next summer.
