STEPPING STONES Overnight Camp Technology-free All Girls 2015-06-19Jun 19-21 066 - 8 $250

ADVENTURE MIAKONDA is pleased to offer our introduction to summer camp summer program for girls ages 6 – 8 years old, called Stepping Stones.  If your daughter would like the opportunity to participate in an overnight camp,  then our Stepping Stones program  is a terrific ‘first step’ to experience all of the benefits that an outdoor camp has to offer. 

Stepping Stones takes place on Birch Island,  Lake WahWashKesh which is located near Parry Sound.  Birch Island is a safe and secure private 23 acre island that is the summer home for over 60 years of Camp Miakonda.  The Stepping Stones program provides a short 3-day overnight adventure camp with other girls of similar age, to experience outdoor camp activities such as swimming, arts and crafts, canoeing, sailing, climbing, archery, outdoor camping skills, nature education, kayaking and more.  There will be an opportunity to learn traditional camp songs while roasting marshmallows over an outdoor camp fire.  The ADVENTURE MIAKONDA experience is the perfect stepping stone for young girls to feel confident in transitioning to a 2 or 4 week summer camping experience. 


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 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."
