Dear friends,

The CGIT Board of Edmonton Society, Camp Wohelo has officially dissolved as of December 31, 2023. We have turned the property and buildings over to the CYCI/Camp Maskepetoon Board. They are not accepting rental bookings for Camp Wohelo, but people can contact Kayla at Camp Maskepetoon about a potential booking there. 780-389-2251 or info@campmaskepetoon.com

Camp Wohelo has been a very special place to many people over the past seventy years. I wish to thank and acknowledge every volunteer, board member, staff and camper who helped make Camp Wohelo such a wonderous place to be for so many people, from all walks of life.

Wohelo’s very first camp took place when on July 2, 1959 the first bus load of CGIT girls stopped in front of the new Lodge at Pigeon Lake. The campers and staff stayed in tents until the cabins were built. We have a lot of great history so if you would like a copy please let me know and it can be emailed to you.

Myself, my daughter Amber(Spike), and my mom Audrey would like to hold a farewell gathering if people are interested. It would be a time for remembrance, seeing camp friends, sharing stories, singing around the campfire, making a craft, paddling a canoe and having some favourite camp food.

If you are a past camper, staff, volunteer and/or a board member and would like to attend a farewell gathering at Camp Wohelo please get in touch with me at 780-430-4062 or campwohelo@yahoo.ca.

Because it is not a board event we will have to charge a small amount per person to cover any cost involved. We were thinking of a day or an overnight, depending on peoples interest.

Sincerely,

Danette Barner
