Why Choose the Y Day Camps?

As Canada’s largest camp provider, the YMCA of Three Rivers (YTR) offers a safe and inclusive camp experience for all children ages 4 – 12 years. When you choose YMCA of Three Rivers summer day camps, you are given the option between a day camp setting in the comfort of a YMCA building, community facility, or a one-of-a-kind ‘unplugged’ camp experience at one of our incredible outdoor, lake-front camp locations.

At all locations we provide quality programming, unique to the features of that site, so campers get the most out of their week. Regardless of the location you choose your camper will have the opportunity to learn new skills, try new activities and build lasting friendships in an inclusive and welcoming environment.


Y Day Camp Staff

Our entire camp team is made up of individuals who are fun, energetic and are passionate about ensuring a successful camp experience for each child! It is our priority to provide an inclusive, engaging and caring environment everyday at camp.

All staff complete extensive training focused on leadership, inclusivity, behaviour support, how to help campers develop, grow foster friendships and build confidence in themselves. 

Day Camp Site Coordinators are located at each site and provide support to Counsellors, camp support staff and LIT’s throughout the summer. It is the role of the Site Coordinators to oversee the smooth operation of each camp day, plan and implement camp programming, and support the camp team.


The YMCA of Three Rivers Day Camps operate two different types of Day Camp programs:

  • Outdoor Camp: At various outdoor sites across Waterloo Region and Wellington County
  • At the Y Camp: Camp at your local family YMCA building


Outdoor Camps

Calling all children and youth who love to explore nature and the outdoors! These sites offer a one-of-a-kind outdoor experience for campers based on the unique landscape of the camp location -many of these camps are located directly on beautiful local lakes and beaches! Our Y Outdoor Day Camps inspires campers to build connections with nature and their peers and encourage campers to step outside of their comfort zone and try something new. This is a great way to introduce children to the traditional camp experience, while staying close to home.
