Women's Wellness Weekends

Reconnect with friends, enjoy the outdoors, eat healthy, delicious meals and be physically active at this wellness-themed weekend retreat. Try something new and revisit traditional camp activities such as paddling, ropes courses and interpretive nature walks. Fitness classes and activities designed to enhance well-being in spirit, mind and body round out these popular fall and winter weekends. More information.

New Year's Family Camp

This four-day winter extravaganza is our most popular Outdoor Centre family program. Activities focus on participating and enjoying Haliburton’s winter wonderland. Cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and broomball are some of the ways that your family can experience our site in the winter. A highlight of New Year’s Family Camp is celebrating the big night on Greenland
time, allowing the youngsters to celebrate Greenland New Years with a fantastic New Years carnival and party.

Family Day Weekend

Join us at YMCA Wanakita for a weekend away with the family. Our Outdoor Centre staff provide a variety of age appropriate programs, allowing family members to either participate together or independently. A great way torefresh and strengthen your family.

March Break Family Camp

Similar to our New Year’s program, our March Break family camp offers a week long program for families to play together at YMCA Wanakita. If the weather cooperates, the maple sap will be running and campers will also get to learn about maple syrup production.

Mother-Daughter Weekend

YMCA Wanakita's Mother-Daughter Weekend provides an ideal mix of activity, adventure and relaxation. The bonds that are formed when multiple generations share a weekend retreat are unparalleled. Enjoy the warmth of a new spring while being active on the waters of Koshlong Lake or exploring our extensive trail system.

Spring Family Weekend - (New in 2018!)

Experience camp with any or all members of your family! This is an opportunity to try camp for the first time or return to a place you love. Spring programs include canoeing, kayaking, high and low ropes, hiking and nature  programs, drumming, outdoor cooking, campfires, crafts and more!

Our Outdoor centre staff do an excellent job providing a variety of age-appropriate programs, allowing family members to participate together or independently in as much or as little as you like. This is a great way to reconnect and strengthen your family.

Work Weekend (Spring and Fall)

If YMCA Wanakita has positively impacted you or your family, consider giving back to your camp community by volunteering for one of our work weekends. We improve the site, clean up camp, and get ready for the next season. Work details may include painting, wood gathering and equipment storage. All must be ready and able to work, eat lots of food, and have a wheelbarrow full of fun. Help keep your camp the best it can be.
