Kandalore is the finest traditional camp in Canada, providing the best of both canoe tripping and in-camp activities. For more than 70 years, Kandalore has given campers (6-15 years of age) 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, or 4 weeks in length. Leadership programs for 16 & 17 year olds.
We currently have a number of Pathfinder Leadership Program scholarships available for teens born in 2002 (turning 16 this year). Application deadline is March 1st, 2018. Applying is easy, we hope to hear from you.
The Our Kids review of Kandalore
Founded more than 70 years ago, the Kandalore program is firmly based in the traditions of camping in Canada, as well as the traditions unique to the camp. All-camp campfires bookend the camper experience, including the Chapter Fire, a signature event held at the end of each month. There’s a lot of whimsy, too, such as the regatta, a day-long program held each session. Those things, and many more, contribute to a camp culture that is vibrant, active, inclusive, and fun. There are some very nice cross-generational programs, including Fairy Night, when senior girls dress up and visit the youngest campers to surprise them with a girls-only campfire. It’s as charming as it is affective. Leadership seeks to provide appropriate challenges, including canoe trips, as a cornerstone of the program, through which campers can build confidence in themselves and in their ability to work with others toward a common goal.
