THE FISHIN' HOLE

Our 1st Annual Summer Camping Trip was held at Camp Meywasin in August of 2018. 31 school aged children, staff and volunteers spent 3 days and 2 nights at camp Meywasin. It was an incredible experience for the children, many of whom had never been camping before.
Camp Meywasin is located on Lake Wabamum at the Village of Fallis, AB, approximately 1 hour west of Edmonton.
The camp is a registered charity, operated by the Meywasin Community Service Association and is open to all youth groups.
