    About Kandalore

    Kandalore is one of the finest overnight camps in Canada, providing the best of both canoe tripping and in-camp activities. For more than 75 years, Kandalore has given campers (6-16 years of age) the chance to get to know and be themselves fully. We've created a warm and supportive family environment where kids can express their individuality, grow in self-confidence and build lifelong friendships. Camper Sessions are 1, 2, and 4 weeks long. Leadership programs for 16 & 17 year olds are 1 or 2 months long.

    COVID-19 Response 

    Summer 2021 in Review and Summer 2022 COVID-19 Update

    In Summer 2021, with the safety and well-being of our community foremost in our mind, the Kandalore team was committed to bringing our community back to camp, in a way that was safest for all of our campers, leaders and staff. In Summer 2021, Kandalore successfully ran a safe, connective and fun summer program for our campers and leaders. Looking forward to summer 2022, the Kandalore team is dedicated to welcoming back our community, with continued vigilance and care, and with the safety and well-being of our community at the front of our mind.

    We are linking Kandalore’s 2021 COVID-19 protocols and handbooks on our website, to give families an understanding of what we had in place in 2021, that allowed us to operate safely and successfully. For Summer 2022, we are continuing to develop and alter our protocols as more information comes available as to what public health measures will be required. Any changes or updates to our protocols will be provided to all registered families as we approach the 2022 summer season, and they become available.

    To keep our community safe, Kandalore has implemented a COVID-19 vaccination policy. This policy is current as of Fall 2021. Kandalore is committed to providing the safest possible experience to our campers and staff and will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and advice from health experts and medical professionals.

  • Insider Reviews & Perspectives

    The Our Kids review of Kandalore

    our take

    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.

    Director's Message

    Janice Greenshields, Director
    BA, BEd

    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.
