We are envisioning what is next for Camp as it approaches it centennial year. Join us in raising $17 million to show Camp Chief Hector some love.

Camp Chief Hector YMCA is beloved by thousands of Albertans, who have paddled, climbed, and hiked on the 1,000 acres in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. For over nine decades, Camp has taught problem solving and resilience, leadership and independence, and created positive, character-building memories, stories and joy.


Both campers and staff recall their camp days with a big grin on their face. Recalling that it was a fun, inclusive, memory-filled cornerstone in their young lives. We are now envisioning what is next for Camp Chief Hector as it approaches it centennial year as a place for fun, belonging, and making memories that last a lifetime. Join us in raising $17 million to upgrade our STAY & PLAY environments.  


These strategic infrastructure improvements are long overdue and will allow camp to continue to be that magical camp in the Rocky Mountains – where some of life’s best stories come from.
