As a year-round camp, we have something for everyone - no matter your age, no matter the season.
In summer we offer our most popular camp programs. For nine weeks each year, our camps are full with the sounds of laughter, clapping, splashing, singing, campfire crackling and cheering. Memories are made in our Summer Kids Overnight Camp, Day Camp and Family Camp. Challenges are laid. Limits are tested. Skills are built. And fun is had by all. We've been offering a traditional camp experience for over 60 years and we're proud of it.
After a busy summer, camp can feel rather quiet. But then the leaves start changing colour and the school groups begin arriving, ready to learn in one of the best classrooms available - the great outdoors. Our Getaway Weekends start back up and we welcome volunteers who help us prep camp for winter programs.
You want snow? We get it - lots of it. Our family and adult Getaway Weekend campers and the many school groups that visit our site, experience an Ontario winter the way it was intended - on skis, snowshoes and skates. There is nothing like the silence of the frozen lake or the crack of a distant pine to make you feel like you've entered a new world.
The snow melts, the buds start blooming and our Weekend Getaway campers, schools and groups get to experience a new beginning at Wanakita. Our traditional Work Weekend welcomes dozens of volunteers who help us clean up camp, take equipment out of storage and prep our site for the hundreds of kids and families who look forward to returning for another summer.
