Every summer overnight camp has traditions that set those camps apart. Camp Kanata is no different.
We cheer in the dining hall, 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 new 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.

Belonging at Camp Kanata
Camp Kanata is a place for all. It is a second home that empowers campers and staff alike to be the best version of themselves. Through inclusive programming in a compassionate and safe environment, we are building the courageous leaders of tomorrow.
Our staff team here at Kanata knows that each person engages with the world in a unique way. We love when we have the opportunity to open our arms wider in service to all. If you have any questions about what it would look like for you or your camper to belong here at Camp Kanata, we encourage you to call or email to set up time to talk with one of our directors.
We can’t wait to welcome you to Camp!
