All Wanakita programs place a special emphasis on self-improvement and the development of relationships within the group. For this reason, campers are immersed in three types of activities: activities for the entire camp, cabin activities (GCA) and optional activities or PCA (Personal Choice Activities), only for Senior programs.
The Wanakita camp belongs to the YMCA group, which is why it is establishing a base of respect for others, for oneself, and for nature. Its wide variety of activities allows campers to grow and have fun while feeling like they belong to a big family. Its leadership program is complete and begins at the age of 15. In this program, much-needed skills are worked on, such as listening, conflict resolution, the power of group work, etc., and traveling by boat is a fundamental part of establishing relationships and links. Wanakita is ideal for all those who want to prepare for the future.
