Camp Yowochas has many areas throughout our property that we use during the course of the year: The campfire circle, Picnic Shelter, Arts & Crafts Hall, Fireside Lounge, Dry Sauna, Natural Sauna, Challenge Course Area and the Retreat Cabin.
The Campfire Circle is where we end most of our days as a large camp community. Staff sing songs and perform in skits. User groups often choose a skit night, where their participants perform on stage. During summer camp every cabin puts on a skit during Thursday night campfire.
The Picnic Shelter is located at the waterfront and is used by day groups to store their belongings and as an escape from inclement weather. There are two change rooms, picnic tables and a large whiteboard inside the picnic shelter.
Arts & Crafts Hall
The Arts & Crafts Hall is our oldest building on camp and is used during the summer as our craft hall and during the winter as our cross country skiing centre.
Fireside Lounge is inside the main lodge and is a perfect place to relax on the couches by the fire. It is reserved during the year for whichever group is staying in The Lodge. It can also be set up as a meeting space or filled with chairs to accommodate a speaker.
The Dry Sauna is located at the waterfront and is used mostly in the mornings after polar dip. It is a great place to warm up after a chilly swim in Lake Wabamun.
Natural Sauna is located by the Tipi and is fashioned after a traditional sweat lodge.
Our Challenge Course Area includes the Zip Line, High Ropes Course, Climbing Wall and Roy Raymond Hall, which is used to escape inclement weather and to store our climbing equipment. There is a seasonal water fountain to provide fresh drinking water.
The Retreat Cabin is located up the 91 Steps of Doom and where user groups who are camping and cooking their own meals will store their supplies and food away from any hungry critters. It also has a campfire circle for the group to gather around each evening.
