Welcome to Camp Kandalore!

Welcome to adventure. To new experiences. To the breathtaking beauty of nature. To cheers, songs and laughter. Welcome to a place where everyone is welcomed and valued. Welcome to finding out who you are and what you can become. Welcome to new-found confidence and resilience.

For more than 75 years, Camp Kandalore has created a camp experience like no other, steeped in tradition, but always fresh. Today, we offer campers more than 30 different in-camp activities, from high ropes and pottery to water skiing.

We also have one of the best canoe tripping programs in Canada. Whether it’s an overnight or a 22-day white water river expedition, campers of all ages have the chance to develop skills and independence.

Kandalore is truly a family. Our counsellors support, inspire, and care about campers. Living together in cabins of four to ten, campers learn to trust and count on one another. They come back year after year, forming lifelong friendships. Welcome to Kandalore, the experience of a lifetime!

Our Vision, Mission and Beliefs

The finest traditional camp in Canada, providing the best of both canoe tripping and in-camp activities.

We help campers to know and be themselves.


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.
