• All meals and activities will be a shared experience with other families participating as part of the Camp.

• Every evening after dinner there will be an opportunity for all families to come together to participate in fun group games, campfires and more

All accommodations and shared spaces will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized prior to any Family Camp guests arriving. During your stay, our team will focus on regularly cleaning and sanitizing high touch/shared items and washrooms across our site.

We are happy to provide more details about our cleaning and sanitizing equipment, if required.


Upon arriving to YMCA Cedar Glen, we ask that you check-in with us in our office, which is located just inside our Main Lodge. You will be greeted by a Cedar Glen staff member that will help get you checked in, confirm any last minute details, provide you with all necessary information and complete any outstanding paperwork. We will then direct you/your family over to your accommodations for you to get settled and begin your camp experience!


All guests will be expected to vacate site once the program has come to an end on the final day. Staff will be available to assist with check out, if required.
