Every summer overnight camp has traditions that set those camps apart. Camp Kanata is no different.
We cheer in the dining hall, kiss the squirrel for birthdays, wake up Gertrude after Chapel, eat family style with our friends and sing Yappoi as we walk to closing campfire.
Campers also experience a week filled with activities, challenges, fun, friendships and values, like honesty, respect, responsibility, caring and faith in God.
Every time a child comes to Camp Kanata they can count on these traditions. They live on and are handed down to hew campers each summer.
The familiarity and experiences are comforting for overnight campers and help them feel confident and connected when away from home.
Our traditions have developed over decades and through generations of helping campers, staff and alumni become who they are today.
