Fall 2021 YMCA Camp Elphinstone Family Camp Update

Over the past several months the YMCA has been working towards the fall re-opening of YMCA Camp Elphinstone. At the same time, we have continued to monitor the evolving pandemic and how it is impacting our communities.

Due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases across B.C., the uncertainty around when the Province of BC will be moving to Step 4 of its Restart Plan, and some challenges we’ve had securing staff for the fall season as a result of the pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our September and Thanksgiving Family Camp sessions.

We recognize this is incredibly disappointing news. The YMCA was looking forward to a fall re-opening. However, the health, safety, and well-being of all our camp participants and staff remain our top priority.

Despite this unfortunate news, our YMCA Camp Elphinstone team is excited to continue planning for a safe and strong re-opening in 2022. We will be sure to keep our YMCA community posted as our plans for next year come together.

If you have any questions in the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact our YMCA Camp Elphinstone team at

We are extremely fortunate to have so many children and families as part of our YMCA Camp Elphinstone family, and look forward to providing them with more memorable experiences as soon as it is safe to do so.
