Camp YMCA Kanawana

Cancellation of Camp YMCA Kanawana

It is with a heavy heart that we must confirm that all our Camp Kanawana YMCA programs are cancelled for the summer.

Despite getting the green light from the government to hold overnight camps this summer, adapting our physical spaces, facilities, and equipment to COVID-19 health measures requires too many changes and effort. While we are committed to supporting kids, we are unable to get Kanawana up and running safely in a timely manner. Therefore, we will sadly remain closed this summer.

Please visit our FAQ section to learn how any payments made will be refunded and get answers to the questions you may have about this decision.

Camp YMCA Kanawana offers an exciting summer camp experience that focuses on fun, adventure, learning, and creativity in a safe and cooperative environment. It is a place where young people can learn about nature and be physically active outdoors while acquiring new skills, building self-confidence and establishing lasting friendships.

All of our programs are offered in English, though most of our staff can speak both English and French.

Financial assistance

All kids should have a chance to experience the magic of camp, no matter their financial situation. This is why our financial assistance program can cover a part of camp fees if you cannot afford to pay the full amount.
