In 2018, the City of Greater Sudbury reviewed its programming for children and youth to consider accessibility, affordability, optimum use of leisure facilities and how these programs address issues related to population health.
It was determined that the continued municipal operation of Camp Wassakwa on Bass Lake, near Fairbank Provincial Park, is no longer viable due to declining enrollment.
A Request for Proposal was issued earlier this year inviting interest from third party operators to deliver child and youth programs at Camp Wassakwa. Unfortunately, no submissions were received.
Residents of Lively and area can enroll their children for an outdoor day camp experience at Camp Sudaca, near Moonlight Beach on Ramsey Lake.
