    Important Update: Camp Elphinstone Summer Season Cancelled

    From the onset of the COVID-19 virus in B.C., the YMCA has been committed to continuing to provide programs and services to families as long it was feasible and aligned with the recommendations of the government agencies.

    In order to best ensure the health of our campers and staff, we have made the difficult decision to close Camp Elphinstone for the 2020 summer season. This applies to all day and overnight camp programs, as well as Summer Family Camp.

    Families registered for a day and overnight summer camp program will receive a full refund. We ask for your patience as we begin to process a large number of refunds. There are no actions required on your part. 

    We recognize the impact the cancellation of the YMCA Camp Elphinstone summer camps season will have on families. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.

    Thank you for choosing the YMCA for your camp experience. We will miss welcoming all the children and families to Camp Elphinstone this summer and look forward to seeing everyone next year.
