About this Camp


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.

The Our Kids review of Kandalore


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. 

The 2021 Experience at Kandalore

With the safety and well-being of our community foremost in our mind, we have had to make the extremely difficult decision to significantly reduce our program offerings for this summer. To the extent that Kandalore is permitted to operate and can deliver its programs safely and responsibly, we have developed updated 2021 Summer Programs that we believe provide the best odds to involve the most campers and staff, and to focus on sustaining and developing Kandalore’s future leaders.

By July, COVID-19 projections suggest that cases will not be low enough to operate a traditional in-camp program safely. To mitigate this risk, we will only be welcoming our LIT Hybrid and Explorer campers to camp as of mid-July to prepare for their Explorer trips.

For August, the modelling suggests that cases will be lower, hopefully sufficiently low enough to permit more campers on site. Conditions and space permitting, Kandalore will operate our LIT program, a four-week session for Senior and Inter campers, as well as a one-week session for our PJ campers (born 2010-2015).

Director's Message

Janice Greenshields, Director

There are countless benefits to sending your camper to Camp Kandalore.  Our parents see great value in the soft skills which are taught and social and emotional growth that our campers return home with at the end of their camp stay.  Our camp experience helps to provide campers with growth in independence, care and respect for others and the opportunity to build self-esteem and self-confidence. 

Our staff absolutely love watching our campers develop their hard skills over the course of the summer.  The campers find so much pride and accomplishment when finally accomplishing a skill they have been working so hard to achieve.  Whether they hit their first bullseye in archery, mastered their J stroke at canoeing, completed their first deep water roll in kayaking or learned how to get up on waterskis – each day brings new challenges and new accomplishments.
