Day Camp staff work between the hours of 8am - 6pm, Monday to Friday.
Following Ontario Bill 27 and in keeping with our values, the YMCA of Greater Toronto is committed to supporting the health and wellbeing of employees. A Right to Disconnect policy has been initiated effective of June 2, 2022. The policy is intended to support work/life balance and staff wellbeing by ensuring that employees have the right to disconnect from their work outside of their scheduled hours regardless of whether they are in a centre/office or working remotely.
Although we try to keep campers' items in their backpacks, occasionally things are forgotten. Any items lost at camp are collected daily and kept in the camp office. If your camper loses an item, contact the Camp Director immediately and they will try to find it.
All lost items will only be stored on-site for one week, after which they will be donated to a local charity.
Unfortunately, the Y cannot take responsibility for lost items.
Please check your camper's possessions daily to ensure they arrive home with them.
