We really had an AMAZING weekend at the camp — it was the perfect place for our wedding reception. We are especially grateful to the staff present for the weekend, lifeguards & the kitchen staff. They were always pleasant and accommodating, and definitely helped make everything go so smoothly. Please pass along our thank yous to them!!

We got so many comments from our guests about how fabulous the venue is. My grandparents could relax in the director’s cabins, while the little kids played soccer on the lawn. We were able to transform the Dining & Rotary Halls with just a little decorating, and they really looked lovely. Our guests all found the cabins comfortable and quaint.

Thank you Rebecca (and also Karen) for answering all of our questions over the past year as we did all the planning.

It was an unforgettable weekend, and the perfect place to celebrate our marriage. I didn’t hurt that we got so lucky with the weather too!

All the best,


Your marvelous facility couldn’t have been more perfect for our wedding celebration needs. Not only did we appreciate the lovely location, we also greatly appreciated your trust and flexibility. Our friends and family loved it too. We’ll pass on the word of your great spot to all our soon-to-be-wed friends.

Having our wedding at Camp Kawartha was fantastic. Our guests came from far and wide so having everyone together in one place for the weekend gave us all quality time together. We had a camp fire by the lake on Friday night as our friends arrived and on Saturday morning we played a soccer match before the wedding. Some folks used the canoes and enjoyed swimming at their leisure. The wedding ceremony was beautiful with the birch trees and lake in the background. Working with the Camp Kawartha staff to organize the event was very pleasant; they were extremely helpful and flexible. I highly recommend the camp cook! She cooked the majority of the weekend meals and the spread was amazing; everyone loved the food. We ate all our meals together in the dining hall and everyone enjoyed the social time and campy feel. It was very convenient for those staying at the camp and people could sneak away to bed whenever they felt the urge. We ended the weekend with a Sunday brunch and one last dip in the lake. My only regret was not having enough time to explore the beautiful trails behind the camp. Many, many of our guests have since told us that our wedding was the best they have ever attended.
