About this camp

highlights

Kandalore is the finest traditional camp in Canada, providing the best of both canoe tripping and in-camp activities. For more than 65 years, Kandalore has given campers the opportunity to know and be themselves. We've created a warm and supportive environment where kids can express their individuality, grow in self-confidence and build friendships that last a lifetime. Camp Sessions are 1, 2, 4, 6 and 8 weeks in length.

The Pathfinder Leadership program for 16 & 17 year olds combines an incredible leadership experience with the development of hard and soft skills, along with a 5-day white water canoe trip down the beautiful Madawaska River, and OSSD high school credits. Scholarships available.

Director's Message

principal

Colin Leonard, Director

There are countless benefits to sending your camper to Camp Kandalore.  Our parents see great value in the soft skills which are taught and social and emotional growth that our campers return home with at the end of their camp stay.  Our camp experience helps to provide campers with growth in independence, care and respect for others and the opportunity to build self-esteem and self-confidence. 

Our staff absolutely love watching our campers develop their hard skills over the course of the summer.  The campers find so much pride and accomplishment when finally accomplishing a skill they have been working so hard to achieve.  Whether they hit their first bullseye in archery, mastered their j stroke at canoeing, completed their first deep water roll in kayaking or learned how to get up on waterskis – each day brings new challenges and new accomplishments.
