Bring the whole family!
Bring the whole family together as you experience an unforgettable week of fun and
adventure! YMCA Wanakita’s unique Family Camp program has set the standard for family
camps throughout the province. Join us to see what we have been bringing to families since
1969. More than just a great family vacation, YMCA Wanakita Family Camp is where you can
develop and strengthen relationships with family and friends while building meaningful memories
together. YMCA Wanakita offers nine weeks of Family Camp program in the summer, where families
arrive midday on Sunday and depart midday the following Saturday.
Our Summer Family Camp program is designed with all members of the family in mind. Each day
is filled with activities and opportunities for family members to play independently and together.
Our staff are well trained in age-appropriate programming, ensuring that campers of all ages
get the most out of their time at YMCA Wanakita. All programs are optional, giving families the
opportunity to choose whether they would like to participate in programs or relax on the beach.
Family camp operates on its own site, known as Wanakita East, which allows the Family Camp
program to operate separately from our Summer Overnight and Day Camp programs.
Each family occupies its own rustic wood cabin outfitted with single and bunk beds, shelving
units, and electricity. Cabins are located moments away from centralized bathrooms
with showers. Family campers share meals together in our community dining hall, where
YMCA Wanakita prides itself on healthy and delicious food. Our Food Services department is able to accommodate most dietary needs. Wanakita East also boasts an outstanding sandy
waterfront with docks for various waterfront activities, fields, courts, and wooded areas for
all land based programs, buildings for indoor activities, and access to fire pits and various
other communal outdoor spaces.
