Our charity is responding to COVID-19 including temporarily closing all YMCA recreation facilities during this time. Child care, virtual early years community services and career development services will continue to run. The most recent information can be found at ymcaokanagan.ca/COVID19

We deliver a unique blend of quality programs that build confidence, improve social skills, and foster independence and leadership. By building connections with other campers and staff, your child will be encouraged to reach for the best in themselves, and in others, every day — all while having fun!

Afternoon Theme Camps (H2O)

(Ages 5-10) Theme inspired crafts, structured active games, outdoor group challenges and team-building activities help make each week a unique experience. Add in dips in the pool and a fully outdoor Friday of fun, and you have the ingredients for a summer full of memories!

Seal Team Aquatic Camps (H2O)

(Ages 5-10) Excite your child's love for water! Attend aquatic lessons based on the YMCA’s National Swimming Program. Swimmers will be placed in a skill- and stroke-development class appropriate to their level. They’ll also learn basic lifesaving skills as a junior lifeguard in training and participate in aquatic games and sports like water polo and themed pool activities.
