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.

CABIN RENTALS: Amenities

The Cabins at Yowochas are modern, rustic lakeside cabin rentals in central Alberta, on the shores of Lake Wabamun. Enjoy the beauty of the natural setting while camping in the comfort of picturesque cabins with real beds – Alberta glamping at its finest!  Enjoy the peace and tranquility of our camp setting at beautiful Lake Wabamun while unplugging from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. 

Each cabin rental comes complete with our Cabin Comforts box, which includes the following: French press coffee pot, metal spatula, metal tongs, cutting board, oven mitt, cork trivet, lighter & service for 6 people (plates, bowls, mugs & utensils). 

Camp stoves are also provided for each rental unit along with a camp stove kettle. Camp stoves are for outdoor use only and may not be used within the cabins or yurt.

Light bedding is supplied in The Fox Den, but you may prefer to also bring additional pillows and warmer blankets for your personal comfort. The Yurt has light bedding for the double bed, but you must bring your own bedding for the bunks.

Please remember that there is no running water in any of our cabins. You may find it helpful to bring a jug of water for easy access within your unit. Potable water is available from the nearby washroom, and basins and dish racks will be available for you to wash your dishes.

 

WHAT TO BRING

The Cabins at Yowochas are designed as a modern upscale camping experience. It is a chance to enjoy all the connections with nature that one experiences while camping, while still enjoying the comfort of beds to sleep in and walls to protect you from the elements.

We supply firewood for your campfire and an outdoor camp stove with fuel, but you should plan to bring everything else you would typically need for a camping trip: 

  • food and beverages
  • cooler to keep your food cold
  • pots, pans, knives and other utensils for meal prep
  • camp chairs to use around the outdoor fire 
  • weather-appropriate clothing
  • toiletries and personal effects
  • hand sanitizer
  • cleaning wipes
  • camera
  • binoculars
  • flashlight/lantern
  • games, cards and/or books
