The Kandalore Leadership Scholarship

Each year, Kandalore offers one full and several partial Leadership Scholarships for our one-month Pathfinder Program (offered for both July and August). This program is a perfect opportunity to connect with other youth and focus on leadership development all while having an amazing time on the beautiful Kandalore site.

The Pathfinder Program combines an in-camp leadership experience and a Grade 11 course with participation in over 30 camp activities, as well as a 5-day whitewater canoe trip down the Madawaska River.

All Leaders will work on attaining:

  • Emergency First Aid and CPR-C
  • Bronze Medallion and/or Cross
  • ORCKA canoeing levels
  • Healthy Living & Outdoor Activities, Grade 11 (PAD30) OSSD Credit
  • 40 hours of community service

Eligible applicants are those born in 2008 who have a genuine interest, respect and concern for the well-being of others, who have a keen involvement in their school or community and who consistently work towards personal growth and development. Many Leaders move on to work as counselors at Kandalore, and all successful applicants will build the social skills, confidence, creativity and independence that young people need to be successful in today’s world.

Applications for the 2024 Kandalore Leadership Scholarships are due by March 1st, 2024.

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.
