The season is changing yet again on Koshlong Lake and around YMCA Wanakita. The leaves have changed, and we have awoken to mornings of frost and cool temperatures. Our minds have turned to Winter. Weeks ago, we made the difficult decision to cancel our Fall programs given the continued uncertainty about how to deliver programs safely in our unique camp environment.

We have now turned our attention to our Winter programming. With on-going unknowns about the progression of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have chosen to cancel our programs for the winter season. This includes family programs, our winter women's weekend, and any school/user groups we would normally welcome during our Winter Outdoor Centre season. During this time we are continuing to plan and coordinate how to best and safely re-open in the future, and are following directions from the government and our local health unit. 

We will post any updates to future program openings on our website, as we move forward.

We want to thank all of you who’ve shared expressions of support and well wishes with the Wanakita team. For those who’ve inquired about additional opportunities to support YMCA Wanakita, please visit:

We look forward to seeing you again.

General Manager, YMCA Wanakita
