We’re opening our doors to teens this summer!
According to the 2016 ParticipACTION Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth, less than 9% of youth under age 18 get the recommended 60 minutes of active play a day. Canada’s children were given a letter grade of a D- in physical activity.
YMCA of Saskatoon is taking action by offering a YMCA Teen Summer Membership for free to teens ages 13-17!
YMCA of Saskatoon encourages youth to get active and meet new friends in a safe and welcoming community this summer. The YMCA Teen Summer Membership is available beginning July 1 and is valid until August 31, 2017. Just remember to bring a parent with their photo ID when registering. Younger teens will be required to attend an initial orientation session with one of our trainers before accessing the cardio and weight equipment.
YMCA Teen Summer Members will have access to YMCA facilities and can:
- go swimming
- work out in the gym and on the weight floor*
- take a fitness class including yoga, pilates, bootcamp
- be with their friends in a safe and welcoming space
- enjoy all the benefits of YMCA teen membership - at no cost!
Strong Kids Campaign raises $137,000
The YMCA of Saskatoon is pleased to announce its annual fundraising campaign has surpassed its 2017 goal of $130,000.
The YMCA of Saskatoon believes all Saskatoon families, children and individuals should have access to its programs and facilities, even if they don’t have the financial means to pay.
The Strong Kids Campaign ensures everyone has the chance to pursue an active, healthy lifestyle and that children and teens have the opportunity for personal development.
“The donors to the Strong Kids Campaign have made it possible for children to have swimming lessons or a camp experience they might not otherwise have had,” said Dean Dodge, CEO of the YMCA of Saskatoon. “We are one of the oldest charities in the city, and have been supporting the development of families and youths in Saskatoon for almost 110 years. Thanks to the Strong Kids Campaign, and our caring donors, we will all enjoy a healthier community where potential is allowed to flourish.”
Each year, the YMCA of Saskatoon helps subsidize the camping experience of more than 200 children, and sponsors more than 150 family memberships and more than 200 individual memberships. It also works with schools and other agencies and programs to make its facilities available to as many people as possible.

Give now to the Strong Kids Campaign!
We gratefully accept donations to the Strong Kids Campaign all year, and 100% of the money raised is used for subsidizing memberships, camps, classes, etc. for those who can’t afford them.
This year’s goal of $130,000 is our highest ever. Our growing community and a poverty rate in Saskatoon estimated by Stats Canada
and the City to be between 10-15% mean there are thousands of children, youth and families that need help, and the overall number is increasing.
People can make donations in person at the YMCA, over the phone (306) 652-7515, or online at ymcasaskatoon.org or www.strongkids.
