12-day Explorers Pioneers (11-12)

Campers aged 11 to 12 have the opportunity to explore the hundreds of acres of forested wilderness on the Kanawana site, led by our experienced and well-trained guides.

Campers spend most days in our Regular Residential Camp program while also preparing and training for their 3- to 4-day camping trip, which will combine canoeing and hiking components. All our trips are centred on teamwork and community living while helping campers develop their own leadership skills.

Please note: For safety purposes, Camp YMCA Kanawana reserves the right to change the length and locations of each trip. These will be determined depending on weather, water, and road conditions, as well as the overall schedule of trips each session.
Canoe trips are physically demanding, and require a certain level of swimming ability. Kanawana therefore reserves the right to refuse any participant we deem unable to cope with the demands of such a trip. 

Good news: We will be open next summer!


We have the COVID-safety guidelines from this past summer in hand, we have started staff hiring, and our installations team has been hard at work on some much-needed renovations at camp over the past year.
