YMCA Camp Kanawana – Discover the spirit & adventure of Kanawana!
Aside from having an unforgettable experience, were you aware that children who go to summer camp have more self-confidence, are more autonomous, have an easier time making friends, have greater environmental awareness, and are more inclined to take part in physical activities?*
For over 100 years now, YMCA Camp Kanawana has been contributing to the development of hundreds of youth every summer by providing them with a unique outdoor experience in a safe and supportive environment. Led by counsellors who have been specially trained, the campers participate in a multitude of activities that encourages teamwork and self-exploration.
- Residential summer camp programs (ages 7 to 17)
