Campers take part in daily swim and canoe classes where they can work on their levels and prepare for their canoe trip!...
Kandalore is one of the finest overnight camps in Canada, providing the best of both canoe tripping and in-camp activities. For more than 74 years, Kandalore has given campers (6-16 years of age) the chance to get to know and be themselves fully. We've created a warm and supportive family environment where kids can express their individuality, grow in self-confidence and build lifelong friendships. Camper Sessions are 1, 2, and 4 weeks long. Leadership programs for 16 & 17 year olds are 1 or 2 months long.
Founded more than 70 years ago, the Kandalore program is firmly based in the traditions of camping in Canada, as well as the traditions unique to the camp. All-camp campfires bookend the camper experience, including the Chapter Fire, a signature event held at the end of each month. There’s a lot of whimsy, too, such as the regatta, a day-long program held each session. Those things, and many more, contribute to a camp culture that is vibrant, active, inclusive, and fun. There are some very nice cross-generational programs, including Fairy Night, when senior girls dress up and visit the youngest campers to surprise them with a girls-only campfire. It’s as charming as it is affective. Leadership seeks to provide appropriate challenges, including canoe trips, as a cornerstone of the program, through which campers can build confidence in themselves and in their ability to work with others toward a common goal.
As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to impact our lives, Kandalore acknowledges that the 2021 summer season will require the implementation of new protocols and policies to keep our camp community safe. Kandalore will look closely to our local health unit, health care professionals, our camp doctors and nurses, the government and to the Ontario Camps Association for direction and guidance to ensure a safe summer experience for all. The safety and well-being of our campers, staff and extended community remains our number one priority.
Our team is continuing to plan for next summer and we are excited to reunite our community. Camp is a home away from home for many of our campers and staff, and a place we all need now, more than ever. As there still remains uncertainties as we draw closer to camp, we would also like to assure parents that should Kandalore not operate for the 2021 summer season as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, a full refund, including the deposit and administration fee will be returned to registered families.
We look forward to connecting with updates about Summer 2021 regularly, as it is a priority that our campers and their families feel safe about their child’s upcoming camp experience. Please do not hesitate to be in touch if you have any questions.View recent COVID-19 updates from Kandalore
