Since 1955, we have provided a supportive community that inspires our campers to become competent, confident and compassionate leaders. Rooted in our values of respect, community, growth and tradition, we are committed to providing a positive camp experience through creating:
Come experience the Wahanowin magic. We're always happy to talk camp!
Wahanowin was founded 1955 by Harold Nashman and it has been owned and operated by the Nashman family ever since. It’s remained true to the initial values that Nashman hoped to express, namely to create an environment of care, one in which children would be challenged to grow into a sense of their abilities and their place in the world. The activities are what you’d expect from a traditional overnight camp with a few unique outliers (trapeze, parasailing) and used in order to build skills as much as grow character, from empathy to grit. The property dates back to the 1860s, and while some of the history of the site remains apparent today, the facilities are all up-to-date and sparkling. The cabins are all new. The Phyllis Weisfeld Theatre, a dedicated performance space, is notable as well. Camp leadership is exceptionally experienced. As ever, Wahanowin remains a strong option, and there’s certainly a lot to love.
Our top priority is to ensure the health and safety of all our campers and staff. We are continuously monitoring the COVID-19 landscape here in Ontario closely and in constant communication with our local public health authorities and the Ontario Camps Association. In collaboration with the protocols and regulations that will be put forward in 2021 by these organizations, we are also further enhancing and developing our policies to ensure the safest overnight camp experience in Summer 2021. Camp Wahanowin has a doctor and 4 nurses on staff at all times.View recent COVID-19 updates from Camp Wahanowin
