YMAP goes to Camp Chief Hector YMCA

Written by Jillian Harbour, YMAP Director, Community YMCA.

The YMCA Achievement Program (YMAP) had their annual trip to Camp Chief Hector YMCA. This year we traveled out to Kananaskis Country with an unprecedented 131 participants, 7 volunteers and 5 staff for a weekend filled with games, lots of laughs, new challenges and amazing people (and no snow!).

Between the always helpful Camp Chief Hector YMCA staff and the strong leadership Matt and Alisha provided the rest of the team, the weekend was a great success. My favourite moments of the weekend were the ever popular open mic night (I am always blown away by the amazing talents YMAP participants keep secret until camp!) and all the teamwork/encouragement I saw between the youth as they faced new and exciting challenges together.

This is often the first experience of its kind for the participants. These youth are new to Canada and seeing and experiencing the mountains and the Canadian outdoors for the first time.

Fun at the Great Western Canada Leadership Conference

Young leaders from across the prairies gathered together at Camp Chief Hector YMCA on Feb 1-3  to participate in our annual Western Canada Leadership Conference.

Each year, participants are encouraged to step out of their comfort zone and experience all aspects of the conference. The participants were left with great memories, new friends and a tool belt full of new skills.

Over 150 participants from the prairie YMCAs came this year and it was an absolute great time!

Sam Effah was a keynote speaker, Canadian track and field star who has been a member at Crowfoot YMCA since he was a youth.

For more information on the Great Western Canada Leadership Conference, please contact the Youth Director at your branch.

 


YMCA on Breakfast Television

Did you catch YMCA Day Camps on Breakfast Television this morning? If not, you missed host Jill Belland doing a live remote at Crowfoot YMCA talking all about different YMCA camp options. The fun included a massive dance party, giant (and loud!) campfire, tons of games and activities.
