Overnight Camp Update May 20, 2020

The provincial government recently announced that all overnight camps in Ontario will be unable to open this summer season. Although, we completely understand the decision, this is heartbreaking news for so many campers who had been holding out hope that after a long quarantine, camp was the light at the end of the tunnel.

We see you, and we share in this disappointment with you.

We will be offering all camper families full refunds of their fees, and will share an email with all of the details shortly.

In 2021 we invite you to join us in our triumphant return to camp so that we can celebrate 96 years of camping at Camp Ki-Wa-Y.

In the meantime, staff teams will keep innovating and work to keep the camp connection alive. We will see you around the campfire before you know it.

 Please keep in touch with us.

Camp Ki-Wa-Y is located on the west shore of Paradise Lake, just outside of St. Clements. Ki-Wa-Y's seventy-seven acres, over twenty-five are naturally wooded, untouched and truly beautiful; a spectacular surprise considering we're just 15 minutes away from Kitchener-Waterloo.
