We are thrilled to bring back an old favourite for 2022—Kanawana Family Camp! We hope that alumni families, new families, and current camper families alike will mingle and share in our relaxing atmosphere.
During the day, we will open many of our traditional camp activities for you to enjoy on your own, or with the whole family—canoeing, archery, climbing, nature walks, and more. Many of our program staff and experienced older staff members will stay on contract after our regular summer camp program ends, so they will be happy to assist you with equipment, teach you the basics, and provide occasional child care so that adults can take a break on their own. In the evenings, we will offer some animated camp classics such as trivia and campfires or leave you to your own devices to socialize at your comfort level.
The whole week will be yours to take advantage of our beautiful site and activities. But we will also be happy to recommend various out-of-camp activities nearby, if you’d like to explore the Saint-Sauveur region—there are plenty of golf courses, spas, and family-friendly activities if you’d like to take a day out of camp. You choose your pace, it’s your vacation!
Food and Facilities
Meals will be served in our dining hall, family style. Depending on the COVID-19 guidelines in place for next summer, you will be able to eat with your own family or choose to mingle with others. Some meals may also lend themselves to being taken out of the dining hall, to nearby picnic tables. All meals and snacks are included in registration prices, and, of course, we will be doing the dishes!
We can cater to many standard diets (vegetarian, non-lactose, basic allergens), but please reach out to us if you have a concern about your dietary needs.
Families can choose to stay in cabins (up to 12 people) or Prospector tents (up to 10 people). All cabins and tents are equipped with bunk beds. If you prefer not to bunk with other families, an additional fee for keeping your cabin or tent exclusive can be added optionally. Toilet and shower houses are separate, but within easy walking distance from all tents and cabins. Cabins have electricity.
Health and Safety
We will comply with all Public Health COVID-19 guidelines, which have been developed in conjunction with the Quebec Camping Association to ensure the context of summer camps and outdoor centres has been appropriately modelled. We understand that this is an evolving process, however, and will provide more up-to-date information as it becomes available for next summer. To ensure the safety of our whole community, we do recommend that anyone eligible for the vaccine obtains their doses prior to coming to camp.
During your stay, we will have a staff member in our Health Centre available to consult on basic first aid and health care. All staff are trained in first aid, and we are only a short drive away from the nearest hospital.
More to Discover
We will send out a more complete Family Camp Guide closer to the summer, but are happy to take your suggestions and questions by email or phone at any time. Contact information is on the left side of the page.
