Who are the staff and how are they selected?
Wahanowin staff are a spirited and loyal team who work hard to make our camp a special place for children. Many have grown up right here as former campers, and have gone through our Counsellor in Training (CIT) program. We also recruit qualified staff from around the world, all of whom are equally dedicated to protecting and preserving our values and vision, and have been carefully screened and selected by our directors.
What are the cabins like?
All our cabins have been completely renovated but have lost none of their rustic charm. Each one accommodates 8 to 12 campers in bunk beds, and all have indoor washrooms with showers, and electricity. We also have shower houses with private shower stalls and additional washroom facilities throughout camp.
Is Wahanowin an accredited camp?
We are an active member of the Ontario Camps Association and meet or surpass all required standards.
How is the food?
The food is fantastic. Our kitchen staff work incredibly hard to maintain our reputation for fabulous food – and lots of it! We can accommodate most dietary needs, and provide delicious and nutritious meals for campers and staff who are vegetarian, vegan, lactose intolerant, allergy to egg, gluten-free as well as halal. We are also a nut-safe camp and do not serve any products with peanuts or other nut-related ingredients.
Can campers bring food to camp?
No. Outside food creates excess garbage, attracts insects and animals, and often causes conflicts within a cabin. Not to worry, each camper receives three nutritious and delicious meals a day, plus mid-morning, afternoon and evening snacks. Campers also get to purchase snacks at the Tuck Shop.
