Camp Kanannaq

YMCA Camp Kanannaq Solaris and Polaris program provides an action-packed day-camp for campers 7 – 12, and 13-18 with special needs, all the excitement of a summer camp experience! Campers will hop on the Y Bus each morning and sing camp songs until they arrive at Nukko Lake for a day of camp fun including a challenge course, archery, forest games, canoeing, swimming and s’mores! Campers will spend time each day trying new activities and choose time with their favorites. Our enthusiastic Camp Counselors will build positive relationships with each individual, recognizing what makes them unique and making them feel a true sense of belonging to the camp community. Through our value bead program, campers will be encouraged to create an environment of honesty, caring, respect, responsibility, and inclusivity. No day at camp is complete without a campfire! Campers will share about their day, laugh and sing as they finish the day together before hopping on the bus to return home. Families have the opportunity to share their camper’s experience with an end of week slideshow and their Camper Development form where Counselors share specific stories from your camper’s adventures!

We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to attend camp, which is why our YMCA Strong Kids Campaign financially assists 1 in 4 campers to attend our summer camp programs. Don’t let a child you know miss out on the opportunity of a life time. Apply for a campership and give them the confidence they need to thrive.

Winter Camp

Join Camp Kanannaq staff at the lake for winter fun! Spend your winter break at Camp Kanannaq snowshoeing, making crafts and maple sugar treats, warming up with campfires, and completing the week with the Camp Kanannaq Snow Olympics! Limited spaces available.
