About our camp

Camp Kandalore started as an all-boy camp in 1947 and hosted its first female campers in 1992. The camp was founded by Kirk Wipper, who played a major role in making the camp known as the “world’s premier canoeing and canoe tripping facilities”. An award-winning founder, Kirk also initiated the launch of a canoeing museum with a world-class collection.

At Camp Kandalore, they are picky about who they hire and welcome the most inspiring staff members who can become role models. Accredited by Ontario Camping Association, this camp is committed to helping kids and teenagers explore their abilities, discover who they are and what they can become.

Through in-camp activities the staff aims to encourage campers try new things, take calculated risks, and learn to work in a team. On the other hand, off-camp trips are a great chance to teach how to make decisions, how to solve problems as well as connect with nature that helps them realize what matters and what does not. Each trip is customized for location and duration, taking into account camper’s age and skill level.
