Everyone should have the opportunity to make
endless summer camp memories.
This summer, your child will be happy and active at YMCA Summer Day Camps!
This summer, your child will be happy and active at one of our Day Camp or Summer Kids Club locations across Simcoe, Muskoka, and Parry Sound. Children aged 4-5 years old can register for Summer Kids Club at 11 different licenced child care locations. Children aged 6-12 years old can register for Day Camp at 8 different locations offering a variety of programs. There is something for everyone!
Please select one of the regions below to explore the camp programs available in your area!
Day Camp at Springwater Provincial Park:
Campers will have the opportunity to explore the great outdoors and develop their love of nature at Bass Lake Provincial Park! Available activities include sports and games, crafts, hiking, canoeing, and daily swimming in Bass Lake.
In 2022, we are offering 9 weeks of day camp!
Inclusion Support Program (6-12 years old): The YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka is committed to working with families to support campers with special needs, whether developmental, physical, cognitive, emotional or behavioural. Inclusion support is facilitated by our inclusion counsellors who are youth with at least 1 year of experience working with children. They receive YMCA training and are not licensed professionals. Please note we do not offer personal care and campers should be able to use the toilet by themselves and dress and change themselves independently.
When submitting your camp registration, please register for ‘Inclusion Support’ for the session and location desired and a member of the YMCA staff team will connect with you this spring to discuss inclusion supports and confirm your spot.
Day Camp Refunds and Cancellations: Requests for refunds of paid camp fees must be made at least 14 days prior to the camp week commencing in order for a refund to be considered. Cancellation requests made less than 14 days prior to the camp week must have an attached medical note in order to obtain a refund.
Financial Assistance: The Children’s Services Division of the County of Simcoe, the District of Muskoka and the District of Parry Sound provides child care subsidies to eligible families. The YMCA has secured purchase of service agreements allowing children to attend YMCA Child Care and Day Camp programs with the aid of subsidies.
