Activities include High Ropes, Climbing Wall, Sailing, Outdoor Living Skills, Canoe, SUP, Swimming, Archery, Riflery, Windsurfing, Creative Arts, Horseback Riding etc. Wyonegonic also hires aunts and uncles (non-cabin staff). Aunts and Uncles usually are activity instructors, supervisors or trip leaders, belonging to a unit and partaking in all special events, evening programs and unit activities. The teamwork and flexibility of all staff working together are what makes each summer a success.
