Camp Wahanowin is located in Simcoe County on Lake Couchiching, near Orillia, Ontario. It is located on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabeg, Ojibwe, Odawa and the Pottawatomi nations.

Since 1955, Camp Wahanowin has provided a traditional summer camp program and experience. One that emphasizes team-building and cooperation, and teaches independence and leadership. They offer a safe, friendly atmosphere for children and teens to develop physical and emotional skills, and create lasting friendships, so that they leave feeling confident, inspired and empowered. Activities include arts and crafts, pottery, sports, archery, dance, zipline/rock climbing wall, fishing, wakeboarding, waterskiing, tubing, sailing, paddle-boarding, and more!

PLEASE NOTE: As we prepare for the 2023 camp season, we continue to observe the COVID-19 pandemic and the developments of provincial health guidelines. We are working closely with the Crohn's and Colitis COVID-19 and IBD Task Force and our partner sites, to ensure the health and safety of our campers. As a result, your child's camp acceptance or camp program may be subject to changes or cancellation.
