Guelph Y's Summer Day Camps and Summer Care


Guelph Y Summer Day Camps and Summer Care

Our vision at the Guelph Y is to be a leader and valued partner in building a healthy community. Our values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and inclusiveness are embedded in our Summer Day Camps and in our Summer Child Care programming. Our camps and childcare are designed to encourage your child's imagination, curiosity, creativity, self-esteem and confidence.

When you choose Guelph Y summer day camps, we provide the option between a traditional camp setting in the comfort of the Guelph Y or a one-of- a-kind ‘unplugged’ camp experience at Guelph Lake. At The Y camp gives campers the opportunity to enjoy active games, songs, crafts, sports, swimming, and field trips. Camp Conestogo gives campers the opportunity to step outside of their comfort zone and try fun activities such as low ropes, canoeing, nature hikes, and campfire cooking. Whether you choose the traditional At The Y camp, or the one-of- a-kind ‘unplugged’ setting at Camp Conestogo, all campers get the chance to learn new skills, try fun activities, and build lasting friendships in an inclusive and welcoming environment.

To ensure access to our camps we offer various bus pick-up and drop-off locations throughout the city. The Y Camps offer extended care before camp from 7:00-8:30 A.M., and after camps 5:00-6:00 P.M. at the YMCA-YWCA of Guelph Main Building and Trinity United Church.
