We hope that among the challenges the current pandemic situation has brought, that you've found opportunities to embrace an old hobby, build a new skill and connect with others in different ways. It is these connections to our self and others that are so vital to our overall well-being. I know Wanakita is an important place to build these connections.

I am saddened to share that we've made the difficult decision to cancel all YMCA Wanakita programs for Summer 2020. This will be the first summer ever in our 67 year history that Wanakita and Koshlong Lake will not come alive with campers. We know this news will be hard for many who live for their Wanakita summer.

This decision to keep campers, families and our staff safe, will have a significant impact on Wanakita and the communities we serve. 

If you are in a position to help, please do so by making a gift to camp’s greatest needs. Thank you for your support and we wish you and your families good health.
