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.


With woods, water, real friends and connected counselors, Camp Kanata shapes campers into confident, independent kids.

Spend a week, or more, in the great outdoors with awesome activities, friends and fun at Camp Kanata Day Camp. It's all here!

Camp Kanata Weekend Camps are two-night, three-day adventures held during the fall and spring. Great for first-time campers.
