Winter Wonders Camp – Ma Kee Wa

The Agenda

We asked our girls what they would like to at camp. Our top 3 requests were: more sleep, tobogganing and crafts.

The result was an agenda with plenty of flexibility, buffer time and for once I finally felt somewhat rested and definitely not exhausted.

This agenda is a keeper.

The Farm House


So much love and care has gone into The Farm House. Hand crafted trefoils, a photographic quilt, a pin pricked lamp shade, cross-stitching and stencils decorate this house. This is a very special place to stay in for camp. We had 12 girls and 5 leaders sharing this space and the connected Branches very comfortably. You could see the girls felt very comfortable in the space.

The Toboggan Hill


We had just enough snow to enjoy the toboggan hill. The girls had such a fun time trying each other’s sleds and enjoying this spacious hill all to themselves.

The Enchanted Forest

There were new things to discover the second time around in the Enchanted Forest and the girls  added their own mark by hanging their pine cone bird feeders along the trail.

Fresh tracks


It was one of the best camps I’ve been a part of thanks to Fire Fly, Frost, Spark and Blaze.
