Camp NeeKauNis is a Waubaushene, Sturgeon Bay (part of Georgian Bay), the camp grounds consist of 32 acres of partially forested, elevated land. The Camp operates mainly for 2 months in July and August with limited usage in other times. A typical Camp NeeKauNis program will have around 30 campers with an additional 15-20 staff.
The Camp NeeKauNis land was scouted out originally by Fred Haslam as a representative of Albert Rogers, whose family's trust fund to this day helps to run the camp. In 1938, an additional purchase was made to expand the property to 15 acres. The camp was sought out as a retreat centre for Young Friends in Toronto, however has since expanded to serve the entire Quaker community in Canada.
In 2005, the camp purchased the neighbouring land to increase the size of the camp to 32 acres.
