Wyonegonic, the oldest continuously run camp for girls, was founded in 1902. 3 and 6 week programs are offered for girls age 8-18. Wyonegonic offers a non-competitive atmosphere which allows campers to build confidence. Emphasis is on personal development and group cooperation. Wyonegonic is composed of three camps; Junior, Intermediate and Senior. These units are designed to fit the needs and interests of each age group. Each unit is a close-knit community that is small enough to kindle deep friendships and personalized attention. Campers live with a counselor in a cabin group of girls their age. Cabin counselors are carefully selected as positive role models and make the needs of their campers top priority. Program is individualized for each camper based on their goals and interests. Particular focus is on waterfront activities and outdoor living skills. Campers choose from traditional activities such as swimming, tennis, sailing, horseback riding, canoeing, archery and creative arts. Age appropriate ropes courses add adventure, challenge and group problem solving. Canoe and hiking trips are offered for all ages from 1-6 days in length in Maine and New Hampshire. Typical clientele represents 30 states and 11 foreign countries. Wyonegonic and Winona are the oldest Brother/Sister camps in the country.

Camp Reviews — Memories from Real Camp Families
Read these stories from our camp community:
|One of my many favorite camp memories is laying in my hammock in the pine trees outside my cabin, laughing and talking and just hanging out with my friends. Iâ€™ve met so many great friends at Wyonegonic. We were doing a lot of nothing, but Iâ€™m so busy all school year that it felt so good to just hang out with such special people in such a special place. I love Wyo so much and canâ€™t wait to get back there.
|One of my camp memories was when I first stepped into Wyo, in the summer of 2014. I had that fluttery feeling in my stomach, yet at the same time couldn't wait to make memories in this beautiful place. In a few minutes I had friends and felt like this had been my home forever. The counselors are like big sisters who comfort you and get to know you in every way they can. Days pass by quickly at Wyo, with all the activities and special events. Sometimes you have twinges of homesickness but it leaves just as quickly as it had come, because you're having too much fun to spend time thinking about it. Everyone there is so nice and they are all like family, Wyo is everyone's second home. At the end of the session you and your friends cry your eyes out and hope to see each other again. You share memories and hug and cry some more and then that session is done. You make so many memories at Wyo that you will never forget. Wyo is a great place for any girl.
|I love Wyo! It is one of the best choices I ever made. My best memory was actually the last night of first session, when my friends and I cried our eyes out, realizing how close we were and how strong our friendship had become. The counselors, CIT's, ACs, and staff just made our friendships stronger through the session. I totally think that any girl would really enjoy Wyo.
|My 9-year old daughter attended Camp Wyonegonic for the first time this past summer and had a fantastic time. We did get a few letters with twinges of homesickness, but the guidance and information the camp staff provided to us reassured us it was normal, to-be-expected emotion. The communications from camp were so professional yet personal. I loved seeing my daughter in the photos Wyo posted each week for parents to enjoy -- her smile made it clear she wasn't TOO homesick! Even though she knows she's missing some of the summer fun at home with her local friends and attending sleepaway camp hundreds of miles away isn't typical for our region, she can't wait to go back!
|The last night of Wyo is amazingly special for campers and parents alke. The younger girls file onto the docks carrying a candle, singing camp songs. The seniors paddle in from two different directions, forming an arc around the docks. Thoughtful words are spoken, memories invoked and songs fill the air, echoing across the lake. The gaudy sunset painting the sky behind the girls puts the whole scene over the top. How lucky my girls are to have spent time at Wyo.
|Some of my most fond memories are sitting around the camp fire singing songs that have been sung for generations at camp. forty years later, I still remember those songs and still sing them with my camp friends when we get together. My daughter is going to camp for the first time this summer, and she'll be ready for the camp fire sing alongs too--with all the songs we've sung together since she was little.
