As a result of the evolving situation, YMCA Calgary announced the temporary closure of our YMCA facilities and programs, including Camp Chief Hector YMCA effective March 16th. The closures follow recommendations by the Chief Medical Officer of Health and on directive from Mayor Nenshi and the Calgary Emergency Management Agency to aggressively manage physical distancing in public places. This decision was not taken lightly as it directly affects over 1,000 staff, 1,900 volunteers and the tens of thousands of people we serve. Please know that YMCA Calgary considers this the best way we can serve the community at this point during this global crisis. We are actively monitoring the situations and will continue to keep you apprised of details regarding the Camp Chief Hector 90th Celebration. We hope you, your family and friends stay well during these unprecedented times.
