Your support will help fund critical capital projects to enhance the camper experience.


The natural world is better than any digital one. It just is.
We prove it to thousands of children every year through our outdoor camps and school programs. Through outdoor experiences, children learn to discover their own personal limits, challenge themselves, think creatively and become more confident and self sufficient. Canoeing in a lake, hiking or riding a horse can be transformative—especially for children who experience these things for the first time. YMCA Calgary is committed to creating an extraordinary physical environment at Camp Chief Hector YMCA that is easy to navigate, respects the natural surroundings and promotes personal growth among participants.
