My daughter got to try new activities that she never would have been able to try.  Through the rest of the summer and fall, she would bring up stories of some of the things they did at camp.  I can see now that she has made some amazing memories.  She has kept in contact with her group of friends that she made at camp.

“Best camp ever”, our son says. He would stay the entire summer if he could. Great food, fun and caring counsellors, excellent activities that teach our youth about environmental awareness and responsibility.

Parent, Session C, 2016

Our daughter has flourished at Camp Kawartha.  Her summers at Camp Kawartha have been filled with friendship, laughter, and fun in a beautiful natural setting with the nurturing, safety and quirky traditions of a large family. The staff are the best of the best!

Parent, Pre-Leadership Camp, 2016

Camp Kawartha is a place where our kids feel safe, happy, independent and cared about.   The experiences that they have enjoyed while at camp have given them courage and confidence to be their best selves all year long.   From the day we pick them up from the end of their session, our girls are counting the days until they return next year.

My daughter has been going to Camp Kawartha since the first summer she was old enough for day camp. Every year since she has lengthened her stay and this year at 12 went for 3 weeks. In the middle of August she asked if we could register yet for next year. Camp Kawartha is a magical place – everything summer camp is supposed to be.

It was a first time for our 10 year old son to stay in overnight camp for one week. Totally loved it! We did not expect it to be THAT awesome. So many activities and learning new, great leadership, food is “better than at home”(according to our boy), beautiful location, cozy cabins. Thank you, guys, for doing such a great job! Very memorable times.

They came back transformed. They came back enriched. It’s the greatest gift you can give a kid.

Parent, CK-Overnight, Session N, 2016

This was our daughter’s 5th year at Camp Kawartha. She had another wonderful experience with the enthusiastic counsellors and lots of new friends! The camp is on a beautiful property and my daughter loved being on the water and learning how to sail and kayak. I highly recommend Camp Kawartha!

Parent, Session A, 2016

Camp Kawartha was a great first Camp experience for our son! The whole process from start to finish was organized and welcoming. Our son had been very nervous upon our arrival, but as soon as he arrived we were asked to leave, he said he felt “at home” right away! Couldn’t ask for more! Adventure, Nature and Security! Thank you Camp Kawartha

Parent, Session N, 2016

I am really impressed with Camp Kawartha. I did not go to camp as a child so I was nervous about sending my kids to an overnight camp but Camp Kawartha was the right choice. From the first day, I felt confident that they were in good hands and when I picked them up, I could already see an improvement in their independence and self esteem.

Parent, Session B, 2016

My son had the time of his life on the canoe trip in Algonquin Park – a fantastic experience where he made new friends, discovered a beautiful area, and can’t wait to go back!  We travel as a family quite a bit, but this was the most memorable trip of his summer!
