Camp Michikamau

Camp Michikamau is our back-to-basics sleepaway camp where kids get to be kids – unplugged and connected to nature. Campers experience enriching, fun, outdoor adventures. We’re about teamwork, curiosity, building self-confidence, and cultivating independence. We’re committed to the development of our campers with our Y values: caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
