Where children can grow, make new friends, and strengthen their independence

Our 2020 YMCA Summer Day Camps start July 6th!

The YMCA of Greater Halifax/Dartmouth has responded to the COVID-19 global pandemic in alignment with the most accurate and up-to-date information and guidance from the Province of Nova Scotia, and the Nova Scotia Department of Health. As always, we are committed to providing healthy, safe spaces for all staff, volunteers, visitors, participants, and members.

As we work to reopen, we have a number of systems, policies, and activities that occur on a daily basis in our ongoing effort to keep our programs safe, and we are working hard to meet all of the protocols and guidelines set forth by our Provincial Health Authority.

Our YMCA is guided by core values including respect, responsibility, honesty, caring and inclusion. It is through these principles that we are approaching our operational plans, working to ensure the YMCA continues to be safe and welcoming.

There are a limited number of spaces available due to operational restrictions.

Therefore, in order to secure your child’s spot, payment in full is due at registration.

Please register via phone and/or email at brittany.alminayan@halifax.ymca.ca

  • Bring your own lunch and snacks, sunscreen, hat and change of clothes for outdoor water play
  • There will be no swimming this year

*At the YMCA, we ensure that no one is ever turned away due to an inability to pay. Opportunity Bursaries are available. Please indicate your requirement during the registration process.

We will be taking registrations for the month of July only.

Registration will re-open the last week of July for the month of August.

The YMCA of Greater Halifax/ Dartmouth Summer Day Camps will be using a daily screening tool to support the health and safety of our campers and our staff team. This will be a short questionnaire that you must complete on behalf of your child every day your child attends camp. We will be strictly adhering to the current Public Health guidelines and have a YMCA Summer Day Camps COVID-19 Operational Plan in place.
