Our Camps

Camp Kanata is a YMCA summer camp located about an hour north of Raleigh, N.C.

We offer Day and Overnight Camps in one-week sessions. During the fall and spring, Camp Kanata offers Weekend Camps for elementary and middle school kids, and a high school leadership camp.

All camps offer exceptional water and land activities including kayaking, canoeing, archery and hiking on our 150-acre, wooded campus.

YMCA Guides & Princesses spend their Fall Outings at Kanata in October and November and the Camp facilities are available for team building and/ or corporate retreats as well.

Be sure to read our Registration FAQs below for important registration information. Registration links will be posted on our website but please note that you do not have to wait for the reminder email in order to register on the 10th.
