A Week of Community


A peaceful, fun opportunity to simply be yourself

The Camp Experience

It is the mission of Camp Wendake to provide a safe, welcoming residential camping experience for persons living with HIV and those who support them. We strive to honour diversity in age, gender, race, sexual orientation, ability, health status, culture, spirituality and economic state.

Our camp program includes:

  • a great menu of three full home cooked meals per day, plus snacks and drinks available 24/7. No one goes hungry at camp!

  • evening campfire programs along with other nightly activities such as variety night and bingo. Daytime activity options can include arts & crafts, a town outing, *children's program, swimming at our stunning beach and waterfront, choir, drumming circles, archery... and so much more

  • an opportunity for individuals living with HIV to socialize and be with others who share this experience

* our children's program is available for school aged children who attend Camp Wendake with their parents. There is a morning and an afternoon program. When children are not attending the children's program, they must always have parent supervision.
