YMCA John Island Camp
A Northern Ontario Tradition

YMCA John Island Camp is the summer camp and residential outdoor education centre of the YMCA of Northeastern Ontario. We are located near the town of Spanish, Ontario Canada.

In 2020, John Island Camp will be celebrating its’ 65th anniversary! There will be several opportunities to celebrate this with us in the New Year – stay tuned for more details!

YMCA John Island Camp is proud of our reputation for providing high quality camp experiences in a fun, caring, and safe environment- all while being in a unique, inspiring setting in the North Channel of Lake Huron! We serve children, young adults and adults through traditional camp programs, leadership development, family camp, wilderness travel programs, and adult weekend programs.


Please see the attached letter regarding our operation and registration for the upcoming season in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We will not be operating overnight camps this season due to the mandate released by the provincial government. If you have registered for the 2020 season previously we will be in touch regarding program refunds by telephone the Week of May 25th-May 29th. We will be discussing options to be refunded or to have your child pre-registered for the 2021 summer with your previous payments applied as a credit.
Please reach out to if you have any questions or concerns about this most recent update.
