Day Camp

2023 Registration Opened in October. 

It’s amazing what you can do in a day – when you find the right place to do it, and the right people to do it with.

And that’s just what you’ll find at Kanata Summer Day Camp. Come enter our world of the great outdoors, great activities, great friends and great fun.

Day campers enjoy the same natural surroundings and programming that make Kanata such a popular place for summer overnight camping.

Kanata Summer Day Camp runs from 7:30 a.m. - 6 p.m., Monday - Friday and is filled with daily swimming, assemblies, and activities. We offer nine one-week sessions for rising grades 1 - 8 (ages 5-13). Our staff to child ratio is 1:10.

What to Bring

Campers should dress appropriately for the outdoors, play and the weather. All shoes must be closed-toe. Sneakers are recommended. All clothing should be clearly marked with the child’s name and phone number.

All children should bring a backpack to carry their belongings. The backpack should be clearly marked with the child’s name and phone number.

In their backpack, campers should have

  • Swimsuit and towel
  • Refillable water bottle
  • Lunch & two snacks

Sunscreen and insect repellent are optional. If your child brings sunscreen or insect repellent, regardless if it is spray or lotion, a Medication Distribution Form, found on our YMCA of the Triangle website, is required. Staff will supervise and/or assist in the application of sunscreen and insect repellent.

A cap or hat for sun protection is advisable as well.

We have many water bottle refill stations around Camp.
