Absolutely, THE Best Way to End Your Summer!

Great Music AND Camp Experience - Our Programmes Can't Be Beat

We provide an extraordinary music and camp experience for young musicians aged 9-18 from beginners to advanced, and we've been doing it for 50 years.

We offer Band (including beginning band instruments), Orchestra (including beginning strings), Suzuki Strings, Choir, Music Theatre, Guitar (classical and acoustic) and Jazz programmes. Check out our Programmes page for more info.

Our Faculty are great musicians and great people. They come to us from around Ontario and the rest of Canada and bring enormous enthusiasm for teaching young players.

Our Music Staff love the week even more than the campers! They live in the cabins with them, eat meals and help them in rehearsals. You can read more about them on the STAFF page.

The Recreation Staff are the best of the Camp Wahanowin Core Staff. While the campers are in class, they're cooking up another great evening programme or getting ready for a rec period.

We See Some of the Best Sunsets!

Located on the site of Camp Wahanowin, on the sunny shores of Lake Couchiching, we're just under 2 hours north of Toronto and about 15 minutes from Orillia.

We know sunsets aren't a reason to come to camp, but we DO see GREAT sunsets. They're the perfect coda to a great camp day.

For Fifty Years... Yes!!! Fifty Years!

Our campers have the time of their lives, making lifelong friends and learning in a challenging, supportive, family-like environment. Many of our campers now start their NMC life at age 9 or 10 and continue through the end of high school, at which point they get in line to be accepted on staff.
