Wyonegonic Camps, established in 1902, is the oldest continuously-run camp for girls in America. Wyonegonic is composed of three separate camps — designed to fit the individual needs and interest of the campers. Each camp forms its own close-knit community that is small enough to kindle deep friendships. Cabin life is rustic and simple. Our seven hundred acres of pine forest and two miles of shoreline offers campers a sense of privacy and isolation.
We offer programs for girls between 8 and 18 years old.Wyonegonic is a camp where girls learn about themselves in a non-competitive atmosphere and enjoy the beauty of friendship in the simplicity of the outdoors.
Wyonegonic encourages and guides all campers to:
Our leadership team provides the guidance and instruction to develop these skills, as well as the incentive for each camper to attain her own personal best.

The beauty of Family Camp is to enjoy each day at your own pace. It provides a refreshing experience in the out of doors in a beautiful location.
Family Camp can be an introduction to the summer camp experience for a prospective camper and her family.
Family Camp is a chance to have fun together; to relax and become reacquainted in a simple setting. It is an opportunity to retreat from the demands of work and school and renew family feelings and spirit.
Wyonegonic Camps will be offering certification trainings in June of 2014. These trainings are available for anyone. Camps and recreation programs from all over New England regularly send staff to Wyonegonic for training and certification. Please click here to view our full website.
Winona Camps also offers a variety of training certifications. It is possible to combine taking courses at both camps. We are located within six miles of each other so it would be easy to attend trainings at both locations. Please visit their website to view their offerings.
The Cobb family also founded Wyonegonic's brother camp Winona in 1908. The Cobbs, being educators, infused their camps with a respect for learning. The Sudduths and Ordways enthusiastically endorse this same goal to share with youth the time-honored practices and ideals of wilderness living.
With Winona just five miles up the lake from Wyonegonic, brothers and sisters can come to camp together. Siblings and cousins can visit each other on Sundays. Many activities such as regattas, road races, and social events for the teenagers are traditionally co-sponsored by the two camps to sustain their long-standing relationship.
