Y Neighbourhood Day Camps

About Neighbourhood Day Camps
Keeping kids of all ages active and engaged in gymnasiums, swimming pools and activity rooms at local YMCA-YWCA facilities or schools, Y Neighbourhood Day Camps are a great way to spend the days of summer full of play, fun and friendships.

Campers enjoy a range of traditional day camp activities, themes and out trips at three locations in the city. Based in your community, Y Neighbourhood Day Camps deliver the traditional, high quality YMCA-YWCA experience. Here, memories are made close to home.

Our Camps are for Everyone

Evelyne E. Laishley Campership Fund
Through a generous legacy gift left by Evelyne E. Laishley (1913-2008), an annual camp sponsorship fund has been established to help underprivileged children and youth experience summer camp. Eligible par
ticipants can apply (through a sponsoring agency) for up to two weeks at the Y's Camp Otonabee. Please note that families who have accessed other Y camp sponsorship programs in the same season will not be eligible for additional support. This fund is offered in partnership with United Way/Centraide Ottawa.
