We founded Medeba for young people!
A Passion - Medeba was founded in 1952 by Stu and Jackie Wilson in Haliburton, Ontario, Canada because they had a deep desire to challenge young people to grow in all areas of life – physically, mentally, socially and spiritually. Stu and Jackie’s heart for young people started Medeba on a journey that continues to this day nearly 70 years later!
From Humble Beginnings -
Those first years saw a few dozen children come to the site in West Guilford. Now, nearly 70 years later, Medeba hosts over 5,000 young people every year, throughout the year, in Summer Camp, Outdoor Education and Group Retreats.
In addition, over the last 25+ years, Medeba has trained 250+ young adults in our 10-month college level leadership training program called Proságo. Students have come from a dozen different countries around the world. After graduation they have gone on to serve young people in their communities, multiplying Medeba's impact on young people here, and around the world.
