Between three to five campmates live together as well as one or two cabin leaders. ‘Units’ of ten tents and cabins share a washhouse equipped with indoor plumbing for hot water showers and toilets.

The Director and senior cabin leaders are careful in putting together the groups that will stay together—these are the people who will bond the most with each other.

Wyonegonic Camps are a great place for young women to discover a different side of life.

Three separate camps comprise Wyonegonic Camp and each one is designed for the individual needs and interest of the campers. Each of the camps form their own intimate community of a size that’s just right for creating meaningful friendships!

Wyonegonic is a camp where girls learn about themselves in a non-competitive atmosphere and enjoy the beauty of friendship in the simplicity of the outdoors.

They enjoy activities like Archery and Riflery, Basketball, Tennis, and Volleyball.
