Health and Safety

Health Center

Camp Kanata has a Health Center staffed 24 hours a day by registered nurses who live at camp. All medications are stored in the Health Center and a registered nurse is responsible for administration.

In the rare occasion that a camper needs additional medical attention, hospitals and urgent care facilities are nearby.


Safety is a top priority at Camp Kanata.

We consider safety instruction as an integral part of camper skill development. All campers wear life jackets during water activities on the lake, and all campers are swim tested on the first day.

Certified lifeguards are on staff at the lake and the pool.

Camp Kanata maintains accreditation from the American Camping Association.
