Guide Kwah-ee- Winter Camp

Kwah-ee is the provincially managed camp for Guides. Girls and youth from across the province come together for a fun-filled camp with great food, great adventure, and great friendships. Kwahee allows girls the opportunity to attend a camp where they can be physically active and learn camp skills. These camps enable the girls, young women and adults who attend them to develop their self-esteem and self-confidence while building their camping and leadership skills and instilling in them a love of the outdoors. Kwahee runs two times throughout the year – winter and summer for Guides aged 9-12.

Please note:

  • Girls apply individually and will be assigned a patrol before camp.
  • The patrols will be assigned prior to camp and be comprised of seven Guides at Camp Kanada and six Guides at Anne Fraser House.
  • All campers will sleep in a large bunk room. They will choose their bunks when they arrive. Leaders will have a separate bunk area in the building.
  • Activities at camp will consist of both indoor and outdoor activities. The weather will be considered when determining how much time Guides will spend outdoors.
  • Both camps have indoor washroom facilities to use during this camp.
  • Meals will be prepared by the camp quartermasters/cooks. Do not send food unless discussed with camp staff before camp.
  • Guides will help with chores, including helping with meals, washing dishes, keeping the washrooms clean and keeping the property clean.
  • Kit list and other information, including activities will be emailed before camp.
  • No electronics at camp. They may become damaged or lost. Camp is a time to unplug and make new friends. Staff will have phones in case of emergencies. If there is a reason why a girl must have electronics then they will be held by the adult staff (unless needed).
