A week at Camp Kanata is like no other week during the summer.
When kids are away from home and away from parents and everyday friends, they grow. New experiences, new friends and new challenges shape campers into confident, independent kids.
Campers, ages 6 - 15, gain confidence in themselves and who they are by making independent decisions about their day and activities.
Our camper-to-counselor ratio is 5:1, and campers develop strong bonds with their counselors. In turn, counselors help campers reach their goals.
Camp Kanata is intentionally rustic. From our wooden cabins and bunks to our no electronics policy, campers connect with each other in the real world – face-to-face and friend-to-friend – during activities, meals and evening cabin time.

A note regarding Community Health:
A strong partnership between Camp and our families is and always has been of utmost importance in support of a camper’s experience at Kanata. Ensuring we have all the information needed on your camper is an essential part of finalizing the registration process.
There is always a chance that your child will need to leave Camp for unforeseen circumstances (illness, behavior issues, injury). To that end, we encourage parents to have an Emergency Contact who is designated as a Health Proxy: someone who can receive important information or make decisions about your camper in the event we are unable to get in touch directly with parents or guardians. This Emergency Contact or Health Proxy is also someone who, within 4-6 hours of receiving a phone call from Camp, would be able to pick your child up from Camp if needed. As you complete the forms process for this summer, we appreciate your thoughtful consideration of whom your Health Proxy might be in the event it is needed.
If you have any questions, please call the Camp office.
