Fun. Delivered fresh daily. 

Our day camp experience teaches essential leadership and social skills and helps kids build character and develop confidence and independence.

From games and sports to arts and crafts to outdoor adventures to science and technology, a Y day camp experience offers kids the chance to learn new things and enjoy new adventures.

In order to have fun and thrive, kids need to feel both physically and emotionally safe. When you drop your child off at a Y day camp, you can rest assured that their total well-being will be nurtured and supported by caring Y staff who are committed to ensuring that their experience is a great one.

We’ve adapted our day camp programs to meet CDC safety recommendations to help keep kids safe from COVID-19.

Summer at the Y allows kids the space to grow stronger and more confident in a safe, nurturing environment.

Scholarships for Summer Day Camp are available thanks to the Ottawa YMCA Annual Campaign
