Everything New for Summer 2024

Camp MYWCountdown to Camp

Countdown to Camp for Summer 2024 is in full swing! We created this video series to help kids have the best possible experience at Mini-Yo-We. Registered families receive an email with a new video every Sunday at 2 PM. Our team has gathered information that’s useful for first-time and returning campers, including FAQs, camp tours, summer directors introductions, a packing tutorial and so much more!

Best Summer Ever!

Eryn “Siri” Marchinetz hosted this week’s video and announced what’s new at Mini-Yo-We for 2024. As our Summer Program Development Coordinator, Eryn is planning plenty of fantastic experiences for campers. From try-it-all Core 10 activities to Afternoon Choice Activities and exclusive Instructions, we’re offering exciting new options alongside can’t-miss Camp classics. For example, we’re installing a disc golf course and setting up a pickleball court at Mini-Yo-We this spring. Keep reading to find out what else in store!

We Love Core 10 Activities

The Core 10 for each program are activities we think every camper will want to try. They’re selected with each age group’s skills and interests in mind. At Boys Camp and Girls Camp, kids can challenge themselves on 2 new high-ropes elements this summer: Log Driver’s Waltz and Spinderella. Plus, we added our popular water zipline to the 2024 line-up! Campers rotate through the following Core 10 activities with their cabin mates in the mornings:

  • Archery
  • Biking
  • Canoeing
  • Kayaking
  • Log Driver’s Waltz (High Ropes) – NEW to Core 10
  • Skyline (Land Triple Zipline)
  • Spinderella (High Ropes) – NEW to Core 10
  • Stand-Up Paddleboarding
  • Tubing
  • Water Zipline – NEW to Core 10

At Junior Camp, the Core 10 are geared towards 5- to 9-year-olds and run throughout the day. The new inflatable obstacle course is sure to be an instant favourite! And kids are going to love paddling together in our new 29-foot Voyageur canoe on Mary Lake. The full list of Junior Camp’s Core 10 activities for this summer are:
