My daughter Brooklyn just got back from a two week stay at Camp Wahanowin in Orillia.
Although I attended this camp for two summers as a child, I feel like this review should be told through the eyes of my 8 year old daughter.
I thought it would be most authentic if I provided Brooklyn with a series of questions and she answer them honestly. I am not editing nor am I probing her for any of her responses.
I am typing her answers as she says them. Therefore her answers may not sound grammatically correct.

Name a fear you had and how you overcame it?
I was scared of jumping off the second level of the Waha Princess boat and swing on the trapeze, but I did it this year.

A rainbow slushies and smarties. Sometimes I would pour my smarties into my slushies and drink it.
Were you on the top or bottom bunk?
I was on the top bunk. I chose the top.
What did you do when it was lights out each night?
Some people would do flashlight time and pointed it around, but I just went to sleep because I was tired.
What makes Camp Wahanowin so special?
It reminds me of being free, and learning how to do new fun stuff.
What would you tell the parents who are unsure about sending their kids to sleepover camp?
I would tell them that you should send them to Wahanowin. Your kid will love it there. After I came back from Wahanowin, I was very brave. Your kid will have a lot of fun there.
