Thank you for supporting Summer Programming at YMCA Calgary!

Goal

 
 

In light of everything that our community has been through over the last several months, we knew it was critical to the physical and mental health of individuals to offer a compliment of summer programming. We also knew it would need to be much different than our traditional summer programs. We were up for the challenge to adapt our programs to meet the changing needs of our community and thankfully, so were our generous donors.

 
 

With limited financial resources due to COVID-19, we asked our community to support our Summer Moments programming through charitable giving. With the generosity of the Sarjeant Family’s $50,000 match contribution, we raised $104,967 to support our summer programs. Thank you for supporting this important initiative and creating positive experiences for hundreds of children, youth and adults.

 
 

Summer programming Testimonials

“Because of COVID-19, this program has been extremely important to Grace* being around and interacting with other children. She comes home after each camp smiling and so excited to tell me of the games they played. Thank you for offering this outdoor camp at this very stressful time for children.”
 
“Camp Riveredge has been incredible for our son this summer. The staff and administrators have done an outstanding job at creating a welcoming, safe, and nurturing environment. Since March, the only glimmer of normalcy for our 8-year old son has been this camp. We cannot underscore more greatly the positive impact this has had on his mental and physical health, particularly during this time of the pandemic.”
