Introducing a new play-based summer program for children in kindergarten (4 - 5 years of age).

We have replaced our traditional YMCA Day Camp program (formerly Stepping Stones) with licensed Child Care, called Kinder Connections, with play-based activities for children 4 - 5 years of age.

This program will be offered at locations throughout Hamilton, Burlington, and Brantford this summer.

Programs will operate as six one-week sessions from July 4th until August 11th and will operate between the hours of 8 am - 5 pm. Families will select which weekly sessions they would like to register for. 

Sign up for Kinder Connections opens to the public March 17th, 2023.


(At this time, locations are subject to change based on school board availability, we expect to have locations confirmed by May 2023.)
