The Rangers Program offers a unique experience within the leadership section at Kanawana. It acts as a transitional program for campers who are looking to take on extra responsibility within a camp setting.
15-year-old participants in Rangers are encouraged to apply for either the Trailblazer or Forester programs the following year, as we only begin hiring staff at age 17.
Participants of Rangers come away with transferrable leadership skills that can be brought into all aspects of their lives.
All participants have the exciting opportunity to assist in the implementation of various programs and all-camp events, which vary from session to session.
Campers can only register in one session: Rangers 1 (Sessions 1-2) or Rangers 2 (Sessions 3-4).
Campers are encouraged to register in our Residential Camp programs if they want to attend camp for a longer amount of time.
Deadline to submit an application: March 22, 2021
Cancellation of Camp YMCA Kanawana
It is with a heavy heart that we must confirm that all our Camp Kanawana YMCA programs are cancelled for the summer.
Despite getting the green light from the government to hold overnight camps this summer, adapting our physical spaces, facilities, and equipment to COVID-19 health measures requires too many changes and effort. While we are committed to supporting kids, we are unable to get Kanawana up and running safely in a timely manner. Therefore, we will sadly remain closed this summer.
