After careful consideration based on the latest COVID-19 developments and recommendations by local and regional health officials, we have decided to cancel 2021 March Break Camp in Oakville. However, we are assessing our ability to operate Summer Day Camp in 2021. We are considering three key criteria:

  • Health and Safety
  • Community Interest and Need
  • Viability

If you are interested in having your child attend a YMCA Day Camp this summer, please add your name to our “Interested in Camp” list by emailing customer service.
