Camp YMCA Kanawana

Overnight Camps

Camp YMCA Kanawana offers an exciting summer camp experience that focuses on fun, adventure, learning, and creativity in a safe and cooperative environment. It is a place where young people can learn about nature and be physically active outdoors while acquiring new skills, building self-confidence and establishing lasting friendships.

All of our programs are offered in English, though most of our staff can speak both English and French.

Day Camps

The Adventure at Kanawana program offers a day camp experience on the same site in Saint-Sauveur where campers can participate in stimulating activities in a safe environment. Treat your child to an adventure in the great outdoors and let them explore fun activities that will help them build physical and emotional skills, all without having to pack their suitcases for a long stay.

All of our programs are offered in English, though most of our staff can speak both English and French.

Financial assistance

All kids should have a chance to experience the magic of camp, no matter their financial situation. This is why our financial assistance program and the Programme d'aide financière à l'accessibilité aux camps de vacances (PAFACV) from the Ministère de l’Éducation can cover a part of camp fees if you cannot afford to pay the full amount. To validate your eligibility for the subsidy, consult the PAFACV grid.
