Residential Programs

Camp YMCA Kanawana offers an array of residential camp programs for youth aged 7 to 16. Mornings and evenings are spent in creative and innovative cabin group or all-section/all-camp activities while afternoons are spent in Interest Group activities designed to teach new skills or improve existing skills in specialty areas of the camper’s choice.

ACTIVITIES MAY INCLUDE:

  • Aquatics: water trampoline, swimming, paddleboarding, kayaking, canoeing;
  • Sports & Recreation: low ropes course, archery, rock climbing, soccer, Gaga Ball;
  • Arts & more: theatre, music, arts & crafts, nature, dance, survival skills, woodworking projects.

All activities are designed to teach new skills, provide opportunity for creativity, challenge participants, encourage outdoor exploration, and foster friendships.

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

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.
