  • YWCA Edmonton has been providing summer camp experiences on the shores of Lake Wabamun since 1916. YoWoChAs believes in the incredible power of summer camp and we challenge our campers every day to push themselves outside their comfort zone, to make new friends, and to try new activities. Our staff also helps each camper discover their potential by encouraging them to be courageous, make decisions, solve problems, communicate and connect with one another. It is our mission to teach our campers respect for themselves, others, and the environment.

    Camp Yowochas activities are focused on outdoor education, team building, experiential education, leadership development, environmental education, and outdoor recreation. Our trained facilitators ensure our programs develop self esteem, build friendships, foster appreciation for the natural world, promote character and value development and are incredibly fun!
