A little later than usual, but we have wrapped up our Fall season here at YMCA Wanakita. Over the past few months, we have hosted many groups here at Wanakita that had tons of fun enjoying the beautiful Fall weather we had this year. Summer was a little wet and cold, but this Fall really made up for the cooler wet summer we had.
With temperatures now sinking into the sub-0, we look back on the amazing Fall season, its beautifully coloured leaves, cool crisp nights, beautiful sunny days and those people who made it as always, "the place to have the time of your life"!
We had more than 40 groups here since our Summer Family Camp Week 9 program ended August 30th. Whether they came for leadership focused programming, our Sunship Earth Environmental Education program, or any other specially designed programs, all groups definitely enjoyed lots of fun and recreation in the great outdoors here at camp!
Our Fall 2014 instructor team this season included staff from all across Canada and some from other parts of the world. They all brought such knowledge and excitement to their programming EVERY day. You folks are awesome!
Andrea Pepe, the Outdoor Centre Director, and the Sunship Earth staff team!
Thank you to everyone who came to Wanakita this Fall season and your passion for Wanakita and Outdoor Education & Recreation. It is you who made our Fall what it was and as enjoyable as it was.
A couple weeks ago we had our annual fall work weekend, which was a huge success! We painted, built, raked, varnished, chopped, stacked, roofed and cleaned our way to a much anticipated winter season! Thanks to the 50+ volunteers who came to help out in the wet conditions. We definitely couldn't do it without you!
Finally, here is a more recent photo of the new layer or snow we’ve received at camp (which we’re not complaining about, because it means skiing, snowshoeing and winter fun can come sooner than later!). It has since melted but we're definitely ready for more!
