Amazing Race Canada finishes at Camp Mini-Yo-We
Camp Mini-Yo-We, located on Mary Lake just outside of Huntsville, is where Anthony & James beat out ten teams over 11 episodes, earning the coveted title as The Amazing Race Champion for the seventh season!
“It was so exciting that our location was selected for this first time that The Amazing Race has been in Muskoka! We think our property is pretty special, but this is a huge validation from the producers of this show!” said Director of Outdoor Center from Camp Mini-Yo-We, Jez Bell.
Season 7 of The Amazing Race Canada premiered on July 2, 2019, and was the most-watched entertainment series broadcast this summer with an estimated two million viewers. Choosing locations to film for such a high-profile show is a meticulous process. Camp Mini-Yo-We was selected to be featured as part of the epic finale because of the gorgeous views and classic Canadian camping experience that it provides.
“Camp Mini-Yo-We was the perfect location for a finale on The Amazing Race Canada. We always seek out locations that are private so that we can keep the results secret until September, and so it’s a bit tough to find for the racers,” said Jon Montgomery, the long-time host of The Amazing Race Canada. “Camp Mini-Yo-We provided this and more the wood cabins and main lodge were beautifully contrasted by the sandy beach and lake-front vista provided by the scenic location of the camp. We couldn’t have asked for anything more!”
During the summer months, Camp Mini-Yo-We provides life-changing adventures for children ages 5-16 while building friendships and trying new activities such as canoeing, mountain biking, sailing and more. It’s an amazing and unique opportunity for today’s busy kids to get away and unplug, while young adults ages 17-25 develop essential leadership skills that extends past their summer experience and well into their adult lives.
