COVID-19 - Letter to our YMCA Camp Families
Issued: March 25, 2020

Dear Campers...

As an important part of our camp family, I want to share an update with you on how we at YMCA Wanakita are responding to COVID-19 and the impact on camp programs.

The safety, health and well-being of our campers, families, staff and volunteers is always our top priority. We are in close contact with our local public health and continue to follow the advice of public health authorities as the situation continues to evolve. For the time being, we have temporarily closed camp and cancelled spring programs.

We know how much all of you, our staff, volunteers and campers, look forward to the summer months when you call YMCA Wanakita your second home. We want to assure you that we are still preparing and planning for a wonderful summer camp season and we truly can't wait for that time when we can all be together.

We will continue to monitor the situation and take decisive actions to protect our community and help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and are committed to keeping you informed.

For more information and updates, on how we're responding to COVID-19 at the YMCA of Hamilton|Burlington|Brantford, please visit: YMCAHBB.CA/COVID-19 or contact us at camp at

Thank you for your ongoing support of YMCA Wanakita. We must look after each other during these challenging times as a true camp family does.

General Manager, YMCA Wanakita
