What groups are saying…

The camp staff at Camp Kawartha were so amazing and friendly! Amanda was super knowledgeable and was very accommodating. Maggie, Jen and Tina cooked wonderfully delicious meals! The facilities are wonderful, and there is so much to do! We definitely look forward to coming to visit and relax again soon!

– Yvonne Chan, True Jesus Church

This was the first time that our group had come to CK and it was a great experience. The accommodation, food, programming all exceeded expectations and we look forward to many more trips to CK in the future.

Many of our international students come from very urban areas in the world. Being able to show them and give them an appreciation of Canada’s natural beauty and how important it is to help keep it this way is a great opportunity. I hope they take away these great memories of Canada and their time at Camp Kawartha.

– Anna Choudhury, Laurier International

We put our venue for 30+ youth (teens) and 15 adults together on very short notice. The office staff were amazing at making everything work out without incident. Quick with answers and very accommodating with request. The cabins were very well maintained. Food was excellent and plentiful and all requests were met with pleasure (special diet ones too!). I would have no reservations in recommending this site for further events! Thank you all Camp Kawartha!

– Mike Borgal, Chairman, The Order of the Eastern Star

I was very impressed with all aspects of my experience at the Camp Kawartha Outdoor Centre. I received a lot of support from Camp Kawartha leading up the retreat, and found the staff to be very responsive to my questions. My students loved the retreat, and CK was a great spot for them to explore ideas of leadership in a natural setting. I appreciate all the efforts that Camp Kawartha is making to be an ambassador of environmental sustainability, and this also provided an excellent example for my students. Thank you!

– Johanna Hart, Campus Programs Coordinator, Trent University

Our group has been coming to Camp Kawartha every long weekend in May for 10 years. Every year we see the effort being made to improve every aspect of the facility and we really appreciate it. Our return visits every year attest to the popularity of this venue for our group and their families. This is a wonderful place to bring families and have a peaceful retreat setting.

– Subud Eastern Region

Kawartha is a beautiful site to host a weekend of outdoor activities. The main hall is beautiful, particularly the new floor, which is spectacular. The cabins are cosy and the facilities are well maintained. The trails across the road are a must see, fascinating rock formations and nature trails. The administration staff are very knowledgeable and helpful, a pleasure to work with. Our organization has been coming to Camp Kawartha for a spring weekend for 16 years and we feel very lucky to be able to gather at such a beautiful space to celebrate the outdoors!

– Lynn Woodford, Coordinator, Canadian Wilderness Women’s Network

Great job – once again a terrific stay – we love the facility, the staff and the food – amazing – we are already booked to come back next year.

– Susan McKnight, Camp Organizer, Peterborough Children’s Chorus

We just wanted to thank you so much for making our stay at Camp Kawartha so enjoyable! Your facilities were absolutely great, the cooking so superb, and the service first class. Our group felt like we were all at “home” as we enjoyed our weekend away in the beauty of the Kawartha’s. Your concern and care for all of our participants was truly appreciated more than you will ever know! We also really appreciated your sensitivity with regards to working around our schedule and being so accommodating the entire weekend that we were there. We were so blessed with everything you did this weekend and are looking forward to returning to Camp Kawartha again in the future. Many, many blessings!
