Camp Wanago

What We Do At Camp…

Camp Wanago is back for another summer of excitement and fun!  We’ve organized an amazing and original program that will make your time spent with us very memorable.

This camp is structured into eight one-week sessions throughout July and August. There is a special theme each week, and every Thursday we have a field trip.  Participants can register for a single week but are more than welcome to join us for a number of weeks! Children from 4 years (with preschool experience) to 12 years are welcome to attend, as our many activities are adapted to a wide variety of ages.

Mornings at camp will typically consist of organized games, sports and crafts all under the supervision of our responsible and energetic counsellors. Lunch will then be provided daily (except on trip day) but it is mandatory to bring snacks that are NUT-FREE.  Our afternoons are often spent swimming at Robert Simpson Park. A week at camp also includes mini-trips, visits to local attractions and other special events. We try to spend the majority of our time outdoors enjoying the summer weather!

We aim to provide a safe, fun, interactive and welcoming environment in which to make new friends and have a blast! 

Time: 8:30 am to 3:00 pm daily

For your convenience, we also offer a late pick-up service at the Arnprior Library until 5:00 pm at a rate of $12.50 per day.  Supervision ends promptly at 5:00 pm.

Location:      

  • St. Joseph’s School (weeks 1-4)
  • Christian Education Centre (weeks 5-8)                   

Cost:

  • $195.00 per full week (incl. bus fee)*
  • $155.00 for Week 1 & Week 6 (4 day weeks)*
  • For families enrolling more than two children, each additional child pays only $175.00 per week.

* Registration for the full week includes four lunches, trips and supplies. Additional nominal fees of $2 to $5 may apply for various activities such as bowling and movies.  Notification will be given at the start of each week.

If your child requires assistance while swimming, please provide floatation devices as needed.  Examples: Life Jackets, Water Wings, etc.
