We believe camp is like no other childhood experience…and one that every child deserves to take part in. Our camps combine fun, friendships, physical activity and personal growth to create memories that last a lifetime.
At the YMCA-YWCA of Winnipeg we offer day camps during Spring Break and Winter Holiday weeks as well as throughout the summer months.
Overnight Camps at Camp Stephens
Last year, Camp Stephens was unable to operate due to the COVID-19 pandemic spreading around the world. When we had closed, we had hoped that we would be able to run camp in summer 2021. However, after many discussions over the past few months, we are sad to announce that Camp Stephens will be unable to operate this summer as we continue to experience the negative effects of the pandemic on our operations.
We are deeply saddened to arrive at this conclusion, but we recognize this is the right decision as the health and well-being of our campers, staff and their families and communities must come first. We thank our our camp team who, behind the scenes, worked diligently to find viable ways to safely open this year.
