Why Choose a Y Winnipeg Day Camp?

At the Y, we understand the benefits of a positive camp experience - making new friends, learning new skills and understanding more about oneself and the world around them; that’s what it is all about! Whether they’re discovering their inner artist during craft time or developing their basketball skills in the gym, campers will always play with purpose!

Our camp leaders embrace our core values and camp philosophy, with a heart and passion for developing youth. Whatever unique camp experience you choose, enjoy peace-of-mind knowing that we put your child’s safety at the heart of all we do.

Values Bead Recognition Program

At Y Winnipeg day camps, we promote and demonstrate the following four (4) core values:

Day Camp Values Bead Table

Core values are used to promote positive behaviour and are a reminder of what we value as a camp community. The Values Bead Recognition Program is designed to reward and celebrate campers that demonstrate these core values through their routine, everyday interactions.

Different coloured beads represent each value and are awarded throughout the week: Caring - Red, Honesty - Blue, Respect - Yellow and Responsibility - Green. Ask your camper how they earned their beads!

 As a charity, we are committed to helping ensure that people are not turned away because they can’t afford the full program fee. Visit any one of our branches if your financial circumstances are limiting your child’s access to camp.  Find out more about our Member Access Program.

YMCA-YWCA of Winnipeg uses ePACT to securely collect and manage critical emergency information for all children registered in childcare, day camps and summer overnight camps. ePACT replaces the need to fill out multiple paper forms and ensures we have the most up-to-date and accurate contact and medical information in case of emergency. 

ePACT is quick and easy!

Here are a few things you will need to complete your ePACT record:

  • Health Insurance information or personal healthcare number
  • Medical history
  • Emergency or pick-up list contact information

First-time users will receive an email once their child has been registered into a camp or childcare centre to create an ePACT account. Once your account has been activated, you can click the button below to access your account and make any adjustments to the information when necessary.
