About this camp

highlights

For more than 60 years, Mi-A-Kon-Da has provided young girls aged 7-16 from around the world a safe place to truly be themselves and experience new things. Our campers learn valuable skills, build lifelong friendships, and gain independence in a positive environment. Campers select from a variety of activities, challenging themselves to gain new skills and develop leadership qualities. Our fantastic staff are dedicated to providing a safe, healthy, and nurturing environment for all. Mi-A-Kon-Da is located on a private island where girls can disconnect from technology and develop an appreciation of the outdoors. Mi-A-Kon-Da offers two and four-week sessions. We offer an introductory weekend for girls ages 6-8 who would like to try camp.


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

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."

 - Pam Lamont
