YMCA Child Care Updates

Please be advised that the Shawnessy YMCA Child Development Centre is
CLOSED until further notice.
The South Fish Creek Complex, including the YMCA, is a City of
Calgary Evacuation site. There is no access to the YMCA Calgary facility,
including the Child Care Centre.
We recognize that this will impact families but ask for your understanding as we work to support the needs of City of Calgary residents who have been displaced due to flooding.
The Eau Claire YMCA Child Development Centre also remains closed until further notice due to the mandatory evacuation order by the City of Calgary.
The Saddletowne YMCA Child Development Centre will open as usual on Monday morning. We thank everyone for their patience.  All updates will be posted on our website and to our Twitter account as they occur.

Unfortunately, no incoming or outgoing phone service currently at the Crowfoot YMCA.  We will advise as soon as the phones are operational again.  In the meantime, staff on site are able to maintain communication via cell phones.  Sorry for this inconvenience.

Aboriginal Youth Hoops Canceled

Due to the numerous closures and evacuations, the Aboriginal
Awareness Week Family Day event has been cancelled. Therefore, the annual
Aboriginal Youth Hoops tournament set to run at Millennium Park on Saturday has
also been cancelled.

Strong Kids Golf Tournament

Thank you to all the golfers who were still able to make out and support our Strong Kids golf tournament.  Despite no golf, everyone still enjoyed YMCA fellowship, the silent auction, and a great dinner.  Many children and youth in our community will benefit from everyone’s wonderful support.

Thank you again for making a difference in our community!
