Helping young people grow up healthy, active and engaged is why the Y exists. We’ve been providing camps and outdoor programming for more than 100 years to help children and youth build confidence, leadership skills and environmental awareness. Kids ages 5-17 can choose from a wide range of camps offered across the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley and Sunshine Coast during summer months and school breaks. YMCA Camp Elphinstone also offers outdoor education programs and private function and event rentals during the school year months.

Send your kid to camp

Day camps keep kids active, enable them to make new friends and acquire valuable skills, all while staying close to home at a local camp. Overnight camp, at YMCA Camp Elphinstone on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, offers a unique opportunity to educate and empower kids with the skills to become future leaders. We also offer Family Camp and a Women’s Weekend.

Get Outside with Your School Group

Our Outdoor Education program is designed to get kids active and learning outdoors. Through meaningful experiential learning, kids develop strong and healthy minds and bodies while they learn and grow with friends. With fresh air, open skies, and a diverse ecosystem, the Pacific Northwest is an ideal environment for exploration and discovery. The program operates from September to June and is open seven days a week.
