Rotary’s YMCA Camp Tillicum

Let’s JUMP into summer!

In partnership with the Rotary Club of North Bay, the YMCA is excited to offer a Day Camp program at Camp Tillicum. Programs at Tillicum are perfect for anyone looking to spend more time outdoors. Tillicum is located right on Tillicum Bay which gives campers a great opportunity to enjoy the water and explore outdoors. There are low ropes, archery, canoeing and even indoor activities to get out of the sun, which include some arts and crafts. With all these great program options and staff who know how to make the most of them, your summer will be full of fun!
