About Camp Kanata

Campers experience a week filled with activities, challenges, fun, friendships and values, like honesty, respect, responsibility, caring and faith in God.

Overnight Camp

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.

Day Camps

Come enter our world of the great outdoors, great activities, great friends and great fun. Day campers enjoy the same natural surroundings and programming that make Kanata such a popular place for summer overnight camping.
