Camp Wasaga is the only accredited full time family camp in Manitoba. Camp Wasaga is a not-for-profit organization, governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.

Our Mission

Camp Wasaga is dedicated to providing an atmosphere of love, support and understanding within the camp setting. At camp, families can strengthen and renew their relationships.

Camp Wasaga is open to all. We encourage ethno-cultural, religious, socio-economic and mobility diversity, a respect for nature and consideration of others.

Mornings, experienced staff lead children in imaginative activities emphasizing learning and fun in the outdoor environment. Adventures abound: nature trails, water fun, games, sports, arts and crafts. While kids are in program, parents can join in group activities (beautiful nature hikes with the camp naturalist, biking, canoeing/kayaking) or curling up with a good book.

Afternoons are for families. Do your own thing or participate in a daily family group activity: hikes, active games, bison tours, water sports and more.

At days end, enjoy a brilliant sunset by the lake and join in songs and games around the campfire, relax with new friends, take in the stars in a black sky far from city lights.
