Announcement Regarding
CCHY90th Celebration

 

As in other periods of the pandemic, YMCA Calgary is taking steps to keep our community safe in a environment when our community is seeing rising COVID-19 case numbers. In light of the rising COVID-19 cases in Alberta, and feedback from our camp community about their hesitancy to participate due to COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Camp Chief Hector YMCA 90th celebration.

 

We look forward to hosting future alumni events at Camp Chief Hector in the near future, when we can draw nearer to nature, to each other, and to ourselves.

 

Some alternative dates to join us at camp this fall include:
  • Family Day at Camp – Saturday, October 2nd
  • Halloween Trick or Treat Program at YMCA Camp Riveredge – Sunday, October 31st

 

Please see our online registration portal to sign up for these events.

 

We hope you keep in touch, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
