Mi-A-Kon-Da (est. 1955) is a residential summer camp for girls. At Mi-A-Kon-Da, our campers learn valuable skills, build lifelong friendships, and gain independence in a healthy, positive environment. Campers select activities from a large variety of options, challenging themselves to try new things and develop leadership qualities. Summers at Mi-A-Kon-Da are memorable and fun. Our fantastic staff are dedicated to providing a safe, healthy, and nurturing environment for all. Mi-A-Kon-Da is situated on its own private island where girls can disconnect from technology and instead explore and develop an appreciation of our extensive and beautiful Ontario wilderness. Two and four-week sessions.
Young girls from all over the world, of all ages attend Camp Mi-A-Kon-Da, creating a lifetime of learning, friends and fun. For over 60 years Mi-A-Kon-Da continues to have campers, staff and alumni return each summer.
I believe that all girls should have that one special place and time where they can truly be themselves, feel safe and secure in that environment to experience and try new things they have the power to choose. This is what Mi-A-Kon-Da provides to every girl, her own special place in the world that is all hers, to be themselves.
"Mi-A-Kon-Da is a magical place. There is no other place like it. We come to enjoy nature, make friends, depart, grow and come back again."
Wall climbing and rock climbing are popular activities at Camp Mi-A-Kon-Da. Our climbing wall is located amongst towering pine trees. Campers learn basic skills here and then try the rock climbing wall on a nearby rock face.
Campers enjoy swimming lessons as well as free swim times at our sandy beach waterfront. Fully supervised by qualified counselor staff, each camper also has the opportunity to participate in our swim around the island program.
Our sandy Beaver Beach is home to windsurfing and kayaking programs. Here a camper gets instruction from on looking counselor staff. Campers learn new skills from qualified and experienced staff in one on one settings.
Campers live with three or four children their age in spacious, raised platform tents. Camper tents include beds, shelves and a place to hang coats. Tents are organized in sections so campers friends are close by.
Thank you very much for the two weeks I spent at camp! I enjoyed every day during my time there and I really did have the time of my life. I now have so many fantastic memories which I will never forget. I wouldn't have been able to have so much fun and meet so many new people if it wasn't for you, so thank you!

Mi-A-Kon-Da has become a bright jewel for both our girls. I do think they are happier and more confident and independent for going. You are doing a wonderful job and it is greatly appreciated. They started looking forward to next year before they had even gotten home from this year. And everyone introducing themselves as we walked through the camp. All open and welcoming. I am thankful my girls are experiencing it all!

I really enjoyed Mi-A-Kon-Da. My favourite activity was archery but I also enjoyed the canoe trip, sailing, drama and swim around the island. I liked exploring the island and eating the meals outside. I think that the camp is awesome and hope to come back next summer for more fun!
What makes Mi-A-Kon-Da truly special is the intangible grasp it seems to have over every person that steps foot on (her) island. There's something in the air, written across the counselor's/camper's faces that displays loyalty, love, and life lessons. To this day it remains a place in space and time that I learned a great deal about others and about myself as well.
