YMCA Children's Program

Deerhurst Resort has partnered with specialists at the YMCA to create vacation fun for our younger guests. The YMCA provides fun, active, safe, and developmentally appropriate programming for children aged 18 months to 8 years-old on weekends year-round, and daily during public school holidays. Full-day programs are available, as well as an hourly child-minding service. Programs are full of fun and adventure, with crafts, stories, a morning and afternoon snack break, games, outdoor play, walks to the playground, teambuilding and free play. Our talented and qualified staff has lots of fun things up their sleeves and work hard to ensure a fun and age appropriate experience for each child.
