Thank you to all the families who took the time to fill out our Summer Camp Survey!! We really appreciate all your feedback and testimonials!!
Kids need a break from the city, from their parents, from their school friends. Camp Kawartha is a re-charge for my daughter. She’s come home these past two summers a different kid. She’s confident but comes home knowing that she can manage without us. She loves nature and now sees her role in protecting and preserving it.
Both of our girls have been attending CK since they were old enough to be in Day Camp – they are now 13 and 11 and go for 3 and 2 week sessions respectively (they’d go for the whole summer if we’d let them). They are second generation CK campers and as far as our family is concerned there is no better summer camp!
Our kids go to Camp Kawartha every summer and love it!!! They both consider it a home away from home. My oldest child is looking forward to one day spending the entire summer at camp, hopefully as a camp counsellor. Both of my CK campers have made great friends and great memories every summer… they are counting the days until they return.”
I want to thank Camp Kawartha for helping my daughter to grow with nature and its’ surroundings. She gained experiences from going on the Sr. Canoe Trip that could only be garnered from travelling the unbeaten path on trip, working with the other Sr. girls whilst portaging, canoeing, setting up camp and breaking it down. Everyone has a part to play!
My son had an amazing experience at Camp Kawartha. It was his first time away from home and he can’t wait to go back. On the day we picked him up we weren’t 2 min up the road and he asked to go back. The staff were friendly, fun and out going. His lead counsellor was an excellent role model for my son. I can’t say enough positive things.
Our daughter comes home from Camp Kawartha each summer with tales of fun adventures and new friends. She’s learned new skills and has increased self-confidence as a result of her Camp Kawartha experiences. Although she has tried other camps, her favourite is Camp Kawartha, and it’s the only one she wants to attend now.
We are long time CK camp lovers with one child in her 6th (or was it 7th) year of camp. Her cousin joined her for his first ever camp experience and he absolutely loved it as well. The camp and staff focus on the kid’s mental and physical well being. Kids are device free for their time and love it!! Thank you to Adam and all of the CK Staff!!!
When I went to pick up my son at Camp Kawartha after a two week session, he told me he didn’t want to leave…he was having too much fun and that he would miss everyone. Overall this tells me that CK has had a positive impact on him. This was his third year at cK (2017). He’ll be returning again next summer!
Nothing matters as much to them as the promise of returning to Camp Kawartha next year. They start begging to return before we get out of the parking lot. It has been beneficial to their self esteem and improves their ability to deal with unpredictable circumstances. They come home with greater independence and the city stress just melts away.
Camp Kawartha has given two of the greatest gifts to my youngest daughter. Independence and Responsibility. And the best part is they did it through activities that engage and are just plain fun!
It is all true. Sending your child to Camp Kawartha really makes a huge difference in confidence, builds lasting friendships and helps them disconnect from their electronics. We are so glad we were able to give our child this opportunity. It has made the world of difference to her and to the family dynamic too.
