Residential and day camp programs are located on Koshlong Lake * Programs include:
SUMMER CAMPS:
On Week Camps
Kita Camp
Ages: 7 - 12
The Kita program is YMCA Wanakita’s one-week camp program providing a unique and supportive atmosphere with experienced counsellors chosen specifically to create a fun, inclusive and welcoming environment. Kitas participate in Personal Choice Activities (PCA), enjoy the energy and sharing of meals in the Core Dining Hall with all campers, and experience a traditional one night Wanakita out-trip.
Two Week Programs
Junior and Intermediate (JI)
Ages: 7 - 12
Junior and Intermediate campers (JI) enjoy the best that Wanakita has to offer. JIs participate in a variety of activities that are fun, engaging, and instructive. Every morning campers participate in Personal Choice Activities (PCA), selected at registration, wherein campers receive instruction in various traditional camp activities from archery to sailing. Campers also get a chance to challenge themselves on an out-trip tailored to their level of experience, exploring Koshlong Lake.
Juniors will have a one night introduction to out-tripping while Intermediates will be out for two nights, learning and developing a number of outdoor skills. Our JI’s also participate in Theme Days, friendly camp-wide games, during each session.
Senior Campers
Ages: 13 - 15
We offer three opportunities for our Senior campers to participate in our Summer Overnight Camp. Programs are two weeks long.
Senior Traditional
With nine days at camp and five days on trip, “Trad” campers get the best of both worlds while enjoying the full extent of YMCA Wanakita’s diverse programming. The five-day canoe trip in the Canadian wilderness provides each cabin group a meaningful challenge to work toward. We believe that the sense of purpose and adventure fostered in this program will help any camper gain self-confidence and build lasting friendships. The Senior Traditional Program has remained one of our most successful programs for over 60 years.
Senior Specialty
Senior Specialty campers spend two weeks at YMCA Wanakita refining skills and strengthening friendships. These campers also participate in a three-day out-trip on Koshlong Lake to allow them to hone their skills and bond in a unique manner. Spending the full two weeks at camp allows Senior Specialty campers to pursue more time-intensive skills such as paddle-making and advanced wilderness skills.
Senior Tripper
No prior canoe tripping experience is necessary in this specialty program, only a sense of adventure and discovery. Campers begin with two days of packing, preparation, and fun at camp, and then off for an incredible ten days of adventure, exploration and canoeing in Killarney and Algonquin Provincial Parks. Trippers will learn about outdoor living skills, canoeing skills and much more. The final two days are spent at camp debriefing the experience, while participating in a number of YMCA Wanakita’s closing traditions. Campers will be supported by staff uniquely suited to the tripping experience.
First Year Student Counsellor Leadership Training Program Residential Camp (Ages 15 years +):
The program has as its focus, high-level program skill development, with an introduction to group leadership skills. A six day canoe trip to Kipawa, Temagami or the French River Georgian Bay area, an overnight solo, white water kayaking, first aid, lifesaving, board sailing, outdoor living skills and environmental pursuits, archery, sailing, swimming, team building, high ropes, climbing and canoeing are just some of the components.
2nd Year Student Counsellor Leadership Training Program Residential Camp (Ages 16 years):
To maintain quality leadership for the future at camp(s) and in our home communities, Wanakita has a highly developed and structured two-year Leadership Training Program. All potential participants for both programs must possess a motivated, mature attitude with a desire to learn and participate fully in all aspects of the program.
Day Camp Program (Ages 5-13 years):
This program is available for those who reside or are visiting/cottaging in the Haliburton/Minden area. Day campers participate in both land and water based programs and have the opportunity to participate in a one night overnight experience each week.
