“My kids haven’t stopped singing camp songs since returning home, made so many amazing friends and have asked to go back next year! They absolutely loved their time at camp!”
Friendships. Self-exploration. Leadership. It all starts here, at YMCA Camps. At our camps there are no classrooms or cliques, no homework or tests. Instead, there are opportunities for self discovery and skill building. We offer several day and overnight camps, which operate across the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley and Sunshine Coast during the summer months.
You really can’t go wrong with a YMCA camp, and there are a few very good reasons for that. The Y has been fully invested in camp programs since Taylor Statten first developed them for the Y in 1902. In the years since, the programs have grown and diversified, literally providing the models that the vast majority of camps looked to when they created their programs. The culture of camps has grown as well, and the organization now has an embarrassment of riches, from top-level administration to program staffing. Everybody involved is here because they want to be here, and have demonstrated a passion and ability to work with kids through the core tenets: mind, body, spirit. Because of the extent and breadth of the operations, the standards are set extremely high. Between the three camps run out of the Vancouver YMCA, there is a diversity of options, allowing campers to grow from their first day-camp experiences, to family camping, to intensive tripping and hiking, to developing leadership skills. The range of environments, including the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley, and Sunshine Coast allows for a range of experience unique to these programs. In all, there’s a lot to love.
