Kyleigh, Heavynne, Julia (2)

Timmins Family YMCA Summer Day Camps are the perfect place for kids to be kids. We have many exciting and adventurous activities planned. Campers will enjoy games, sports, arts and crafts, outdoor play and much more. Field trips, special guests and special theme days are also part of your child’s camp experience. We are proud of our high quality program that will encourage children to develop spirit, mind and body. Parents and guardians can go to work feeling comfortable that their child is safe and having fun during their summer vacation.

Registration Forms

This year we will not have any short form registrations for our current clients. It has been some time since forms have been filled out and in order to ensure all information is up to date we require everyone that fill out the same registration forms.

Please note there are a few different types of forms that need to be filled out, please ensure you are filling out the proper forms.

Again like last year if your child has a special need or diagnosis, after the Summer Camp Registration form has been filled out, you must then complete the Integrated Program Camper Form (even if your child has attended the YMCA of Timmins Summer Camp in previous years, lots can change in a years time!). After these two forms have been filled out and brought to our Main office, the Community Programs Coordinator along with a team of staff will decide whether or not we have the resources for your child to partake in our program. We may also ask to set up a meeting with yourself and your child/children to ensure we have all the information and details we need.

Values Beads Tracker

“It’s all about the beads…”

At YMCA Day Camp, value beads play an important role as a sign of character and personal achievement. As an important form of recognition, beads at camp promote positive behavior, and are worn as a constant reminder of what we value as a camp community.  Throughout the week, beads are awarded to individuals for demonstrating YMCA core values and achieving success in specific programs areas:

Value Beads:  Value Beads are awarded for demonstrating and adopting the six YMCA core values:
Respect (Red): Recognizing and protecting the inherent worth of every person, including oneself.
Health (Blue): Being committed to physical, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual development.
Honesty (Purple): Demonstrating integrity and trustworthiness.
Inclusiveness (Yellow): Appreciating diversity.  Striving to be open to all. Seeking to understand differences and find common ground.
Caring (Green): Acting with compassion and concern for the well-being of others.
Responsibility (Orange): Being dependable and accountable for choices, actions and commitments.

Earning Beads At the beginning of the week, as part of opening circle on the first day, each campers will receive a necklace or bracelet with a white bead representing friendship.  Throughout the week, camper will be presented with opportunities to earn beads.  This can be achieved through participation in each program area and by demonstrating each of the six core values.  Beads are awarded at the end of the everyday as part of closing circle. click here to download a Bead Tracking Chart.
