Health & Safety

We strive to provide the safest camp environment possible. Our entire staff is trained in first aid and safety procedures, with regular reviews and practices throughout the summer.

The camp has a large, modern and fully equipped infirmary staffed by full-time nurses. There is a doctor who lives on site who supports our nursing team with the multiple clinic sessions we provide during the day. In addition, Kandalore has access to the hospital in the nearby town of Minden.

Campers are regularly reminded of Kandalore’s safety rules so that everyone can enjoy a safe and happy camp experience. We are inspected regularly, and proudly maintain the highest standards of the Ontario Ministry of Health and the Ontario Camps Association.

Camp Kandalore recognizes that its work takes place on traditional, ancestral land that has been inhabited by Indigenous people for thousands of years. We are located on Treaty 20 territory, known as the Williams Treaties First Nations: Curve Lake, Rama, Hiawatha, Alderville, Scugog Island, Beausoleil and Georgina Island First Nations.

Kandalore canoe trips also travel through many traditional Indigenous territories across the provinces, predominantly through Treaty 9, Nishnawbe Aski Nation.

We respect their past, present, and future generations, the land, and their traditions. We are grateful for the opportunity to gather, learn, and travel on these lands and waterways.
