Friend Request Process

In order to be placed in the same group as a friend, campers must be in the same age group and registered in the same program. For us to efficiently track these requests, you will need to complete a form for each individual week you are making a request.

Please ensure your request is sent at least two weeks before the start of the program. We do our best to accommodate all requests, however we can not guarantee. If requests are submitted with less than two weeks before the start of the program we cannot accommodate the request. One family will submit the request for both campers. Please only submit the request for your camper and one friend.

Thank you!

Walk Home Alone Process
Camper safety is important to the YMCA of Greater Toronto. Campers younger than 10 must be signed out at the Y Day Camp location or bus stop by an individual 16 years or older and listed as a main contact or authorized pick-up during the registration process. This person will be required to show government-issued ID.

Contacting Us After Hours

Day Camp staff work between the hours of 8 am–6 pm, 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 well-being of employees. A Right to Disconnect policy has been initiated, effective June 2, 2022. The policy is intended to support work/life balance and staff well-being 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.

If you have urgent concerns after hours, you can reach out to our Contact Centre until 8 pm by calling 1-877-303-2267 or emailing

Lost and Found

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 onsite for one week, and then 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.

Leadership Program
Counsellor in Training is a 3-week youth leadership program that focuses on developing the skills required to become a day camp Counsellor.

Youth complete the High Five Healthy Child Development and Standard First Aid & CPR C certifications, and learn resume writing and interview techniques in our employment readiness workshop by the end of the program. During the first week, youth will spend time enjoying camp activities, getting to know their group members, their trainer, and learning about the expectations of the program.

Week 2 includes a week-long overnight at YMCA Cedar Glen Outdoor Centre, where participants will have the opportunity to try rock climbing, high-rope and low-rope courses, and swim in Cedar Glen’s outdoor pool. Youth will spend this week focusing on how to deliver programs to camp age groups and how to create a program plan. Youth will be staying in the Grove Cabin accommodations which sleep eight. All meals are provided in the Cedar Glen dining hall.

Week 3 youth will be paired with a day camp Counsellor to demonstrate what they've learned and assist with delivering camp programs to younger campers. At the end of this week, youth receive a performance appraisal by their trainer and receive 25 volunteer hours. Bussing is available from bus stops throughout the city for $100 round-trip per week upon request.
