Mission Statement

Camp Mi-A-Kon-Da provides a physically and emotionally safe environment that teaches girls to discover their best self.

Philosophy

At Mi-A-Kon-Da we believe in the educational, environmental, social, and recreational values of overnight camp. The experience of overnight camp cannot be replicated in the development of a child. Mi-A-Kon-Da provides a perfect environment for young girls to grow and develop feeling valued, confident, and capable. She learns cooperation, independence and an appreciation for natural surroundings. Each summer she acquires new skills, creates lasting memories and develops lifelong friendships. And the best part is she has a whole lot of fun in the process!
