We believe that every child should have the opportunity to leave the city for a time, swim in our fresh lake, learn to paddle, earn badges, shout camp cheers, learn YMCA values and laugh and play with their fellow campers.  Many kids long to go to camp, including those whose families simply can’t afford to send them.
Your gift to YMCA Strong Kids campaign can make the difference to a child who is eager to be a camper, just like other kids.

Help us say “yes” to a child

YMCA Strong Kids is an annual fundraising campaign that provides children from lower income families with the opportunity to learn, grow and discover more about themselves in  YMCA programs. Through this campaign, you can give a child a camp experience.

By making a gift using the Donate button, 100% of your gift will be directed toward giving a child a YMCA Wanakita camp experience. Gifts of any size are greatly appreciated! You can also make your gift in the name of a camp counsellor. It’s a special way to recognize a lovely camp experience and we’ll be sure to let them know. 

Thank you!

Yours in camping,

The YMCA Wanakita Team
