Camping for the whole family

Camp fun is not just for young campers but also the young at heart. We offer summer-long Family Camp where the whole family can experience the fun of YMCA Wanakita.

Looking for a traditional YMCA Wanakita experience without bunking with us? YMCA Wanakita offers Day Camp for campers residing or visiting the Haliburton/Minden area. Day campers enjoy both land and water based programs, such as swimming, archery, ropes course, canoeing and so much more. Campers will also have the opportunity to start building their early tripping skills by participating in a one-night overnight.

Campers are placed in groups of 6 to 12 campers, based on their age, and are lead by one to two great YMCA Wanakita counsellors.

Our Food Services department will provide a healthy, nutritious lunch that match the activity level of our busy campers and can accommodate special dietary requirements. Some menu examples include:

  • Fresh Pita Sandwiches and Soup
  • Fajitas with all the fixings
  • Homemade Pizza

We pack in a lot of fun between 9am and 4pm. Here's just a glimpse of a typical day:
