YMCA Camp Kanata

Set on 150 rolling, wooded acres outside of Wake Forest, Camp Kanata offers an exciting overnight camp experience for kids from 6 to 15. There is also a day camp option available.

From morning reveille until evening taps, Kanata is alive with activity. We combine skill development and character growth with a mighty mix of fun and adventure – and then wrap it all up in a safe, protective environment that kids and parents love.
