About Camp Wabikon

Location

null
Located in Temagami Ontario, Camp Wabikon sits on the southern tip of Temagami Island on beautiful Lake Temagami, about 250 miles north of Toronto. The area is renowned for its crystal clear waters, old growth pine forests and fantastic shoreline dotted by over 1300 islands, making Wabikon without a doubt one of the finest camp locations in the province of Ontario.

Facilities

Dining Hall

Proudly hanging in the Wabikon Dining Hall are over 45 flags from around the world. Each flag represents a country from which a Camper, CIT or Staff member has traveled to enjoy the unrivalled experience of summer camp in Temagami. With a large porch overlooking the lake, the Dining Hall sits the entire camp 3 times daily for meals and may also be used for indoor activities and events. Each cabin group has its own table hosted by two counsellors and campers enjoy well balanced meals in a fun and nurturing environment.

Accommodations

At Wabikon, campers live in large wooden cabins which sleep 8 to 10 campers and 2 staff members. The camp is divided into sections with the girls’ cabins on one side of camp and the boys’ cabins on the other. Cabins for our younger campers are located near the centre of camp, very close to shower and washroom facilities as well the large Dining and Recreation Hall and the Medical Lodge. Each section has washroom facilities close by which are equipped with electricity, individual shower stalls and flush toilets. All campers have Counsellors’ accommodation within the cabin. The Tuck Shop is open on alternate evenings for campers who wish to purchase snacks and such items as batteries, stamps, camp clothing and toiletries. Tuck Shop purchases are carefully monitored.

Med Shed

A medical doctor or qualified nurse is always in attendance at the Medical Lodge and Wabikon staff are highly trained in first aid procedures. Wabikon has easy access to fully equipped medical centres in both New Liskeard and North Bay. The Medical Lodge or “Med Shed”, with 24-hour nursing supervision, is a comfortable retreat for campers who may need time away from the regular program.

In-Camp Programs

In addition to Wabikon’s full range of daily activities, our program also includes various dramatic and theme based programs mixed in throughout the session. These programs may be afternoon, evening or all day programs and organized as cabin, section or all-camp events. They are a great way to break up the daily routine with some creative, age-appropriate fun and provide an excellent opportunity for teamwork and team play.

Canoe Tripping

All campers are encouraged to participate in a short trip with their cabin-mates. The length of trip is governed by the campers’ age and ability. All Wabikon trips are staffed with qualified and experienced adult trippers and are programmed to be fun, challenging and educational. Wabikon has a large number of modern and well-maintained canoes.
