About this camp


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.

The Our Kids review of Mi-A-Kon-Da

our take

One of the greatest advertisements for Mi-A-Kon-Da is undoubtedly Pam Lamont, who as directed the camp for nearly three decades. She’s personable, spirited, and given to saying things like this: “I believe sincerely in the educational, social and recreational values of camping. Camp provides an ideal environment for a young woman to grow and mature feeling valued, confident, and capable.” All of the activities at Mi-A-Kon-Da point to that overriding goal. The site, itself, is as remarkable and it is unique: it’s situated on its own island and surrounded by crown land. Arriving on site is like stepping into a painting by Tom Thompson, a world away from the bustle of city life. The programming clusters around traditional camp activities, and new programs are added only when they are sympathetic to the culture and goals of the camp. When rowing was introduced, for example, Lamont was careful to ensure that the focus was on the experience of working together as a team, and having a new experience, rather than competition. “I said I don’t want this activity to be about levels. I just want it to be an experience. If they want to pursue it in a competitive way, they may … a lot of the girls who do our dance program, they do it just for fun. And that’s great.” It is. Every camp is unique, though Mi-A-Kon-Da, in particular, proves that point.

Director's Message


Pam Lamont, Owner/Director

Why Mi-A-Kon-Da is important -

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."

Stories & Testimonials


Time of My Life

"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!" - Former Camper

Looking Forward to Next Year!

"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!" - Camper Parent

Camp is Awesome!

"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!" - Current Camper

The Magic of Mi-A-Kon-Da

"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." - Former Staff
