Thank you for being there for children, young people and families in your community.

Once upon a time there were hundreds of kids and youth who lived in a vibrant neighbourhood. They loved going to their YMCA, where they could be active, learn new skills and make new friends.

Young kids, like Ludovic and Xavier, found out how fun it is to play sports with their parents at the gym. Teens, like Bishop, discovered the joys of nature at Camp YMCA Kanawana. Young adults, like Ngee, learned more about themselves and others at the TeenZone.

All of these young people thrived at the YMCA and wanted to come each and every day. While they were enjoying lots of different activities and accomplishing all kinds of things, they were growing up to be healthy, confident and productive adults.
