Stories & Testimonials expand



I was a Camp Kawartha camper for seven years as a child and now over 20 years later my own children are having the same experiences that I had at camp. My heart swells every time we drive into camp and I am so proud that my children get to have Camp Kawartha as part of their childhood. Camp is such a special place that it cannot be explained in words, but is a feeling of happiness and belonging that resides in your heart and soul year round and stays with you even into adulthood.



We the Bluestein family, have been sending our 3 boys to camp Kawartha since they were day campers (10 years). Their camp experiences have broadened their life experiences by learning to share, be independent, learn new skills, to appreciate the environment by going on canoe trips and living of the land, and learning respect for others.


Testimonial (2014)expand

Camp Kawartha has been a big part of my boys` summers for seven years. We return each year due to the exceptional staff and programming. My boys are turning into wonderful young men, in part because of the mentoring they have received at Camp Kawartha, and the new experiences they have each year. My eldest was on staff this year, and I like to think he is providing the same mentorship to new campers that he was so lucky to receive. I would recommend Camp Kawartha without hesitation.


Day Camp Testimonial (2014)expand

My boys had a great time at the daycamp. I thought it would be a great way to introduce the camp before they did a sleep over camp. At the end of the first day, they asked to go to sleepover camp!! The staff were energetic, organized and fun! My kids had lots of new experiences and came home everyday, tired, dirty and happy!! A perfect way for young kids to spend a few weeks. We will be back next summer, for sure.


Testimonial (2014)expand

My daughter went to Camp Kawartha not knowing anyone there. This was a huge step for her as she really enjoys just being at home. She was a very shy girl with low self-esteem and very little confidence in herself. What two weeks did for us!! She has so much self-confidence and her self-esteem is incredible. She learned a new sport (Archery) that she continues to do! She tried new foods, which she continues to eat! She met new friends which she continues to talk to! She has changed so much! And for the better! What an amazing kid! What an amazing camp! Thank-You Camp Kawartha!


Testimonial (2014)expand

This was our first experience in sending our daughter to an overnight camp. We were very nervous about doing this, but knew that it was time for our daughter to start spreading her wings. We are originally from the Peterborough area, so I had always heard about Camp Kawartha. So when it came to booking a camp for her to go to, this was a fairly easy decision. The price was within our budget amount and the activities appeared to be really awesome. So we booked our daughter with her friend (the camp was very accommodating in keeping the girls in the same cabin) We picked our daughter up on Saturday and have not stopped hearing about how awesome of an experience she had! As parents, this is what you hope for!! She definitely wants to go back next year…so what more can we say? This truly was an amazing experience for our daughter and our family! We have all spread our wings! Thanks Camp Kawartha!! See you in 2015!…oh and we will be sending our younger son next year too!


Testimonial (2014)expand

My son and daughter have both attended Camp Kawartha over the past 7 years. They have always had a wonderful experience, the staff is the biggest reason for this. My kids also attend the camp during the winter with their school, they really feel comfortable at the camp and my daughter would like to become a councilor in the future.


Testimonial - "Family Tradition"expand

Our 10 year old daughter had a fantastic time at Camp Kawartha again this year - following in a fine family tradition. It is wonderful to see how she grows and develops as a person at camp. I'm envious of her canoeing, archery and sailing skills - as well as the daily swims! Thank you to all the great staff at CK - we couldn't be happier with our choice of camp. ...
