For more than 65 years, Camp Kandalore has created a camping experience like no other in Canada.
A traditional camp that’s anything but typical, Kandalore offers campers a unique mix of in-camp activities, plus one of the most exceptional canoe tripping programs in Canada. It’s more than just camp; it’s a summer experience that can not be found anywhere else.
Secluded on its own private bay on Lake Kabakwa, Camp Kandalore stretches over 80 acres of forest and about a mile of picturesque shoreline. Close to the town of Minden, 230 km north of Toronto and 50 km southwest of Algonquin Park, Kandalore is a postcard for the rugged beauty of the Algonquin Highlands
Canoeing is a proud part of Kandalore heritage and with a fleet of more than100 canoes, campers of all ages can develop skills in one of Canada’s traditional pastimes. The rafters of our dining hall are lined with painted paddles signifying the decades of campers who have completed our canoe tripping voyages – proud badges of shared adventures.
Kandalore also teaches a variety of activities and skills, from swimming and sailing to archery and pottery. Whether it’s on the water, in the forest or in camp, there’s a place for every camper to excel. Our staff – many of them once campers themselves – give kids the encouragement and support they need to develop healthy self-confidence.
Helping young people become leaders at Kandalore – and in life – is just in our nature.
