Community Weekend and BBQ

July 25, 2015 @ 5:00 PM - July 27, 2015 @ 5:00 PM

Community Weekend 2015 is July 26th to 27th with options to stay with us earlier and later!  Consider the Wanapitei Chateau as a vacation destination as well as a place to stay when dropping off or picking up a camper.  Details are below.

Whether you’re welcoming July trips as they “come under the bridge” returning from points near and far, or are arriving early with your August campers (must stay at Chateau or on beach only, under continuous parental care, until August camp officially starts 4:00 pm July 27), here is what you can count on throughout your visit to Camp Wanapitei on lovely Lake Temagami:

  • Stay in the rustic  heritage Wanapitei Chateau, or in a tent  at Chateau Point or on the beach (a limited number of tents available for rent)
  • Delicious meals
  • Enjoy access to the Chateau facilities and beach
  • Take a canoe for a paddle around the lake or up the Red Squirrel River
  • Go for a hike; pack a picnic lunch
  • (Re-)kindle friendships with Wanapitei campers, leaders, family and friends
  • Feel free to bring (and share if you like) your favourite beverages
  • Free camping/tenting on Chateau Point Saturday evening
  • Reduced Chateau lodging rates Saturday night
  • Casual BBQ and campfire Saturday evening
