THE CABINS AT YOWOCHAS
Welcome to The Cabins At Yowochas! These lakeside cabins were decorated by Edmonton designer and artist Justine Ma. All proceeds from our cabin rentals help support Camp Yowochas, a year-round outdoor education centre established in 1916 on Treaty Six territory. Camp Yowochas is operated by YWCA Edmonton, which helps vulnerable women and families in our community and is a powerful voice for gender equity. Many thanks to IKEA Canada, Home Depot Canada, Cloverdale Paints, Divine Floors, The Adams Agency, Priority Printing, Cory Christopher Design and Nick Hirschmann Photography for their support in making this project possible.

Experience true off-the-grid glamping at its finest in this bright and modern yurt. Designed as a true ‘unplugged’ getaway, this lakeside woodland getaway is a little piece of natural paradise: there is no plumbing or electricity in the Yurt, though it does have a propane furnace. For your convenience, there is a jug of water provided and there is a nearby heated bathroom with potable running water. Bathroom is cleaned on a daily basis.
There is no electricity in The Yurt, and while we do supply the basics, you may also prefer to bring additional flashlights and lanterns for extra light in The Yurt once the sun has set for the day. Please remember that candles and open flames are not permitted inside the cabins.
The Yurt is located just down a trail from the Lodge and can accommodate up to 6 people (double bed + 2 sets of single-over-single bunks). Yurt guests have access to an outdoor fire pit and picnic table just steps from their front door. No smoking/vaping of any kind in the Yurt.
