2022 Camper Applications

Thank you so much for your interest in sending your camper to Camp Kennebec for our 2022 season.  This year we will start accepting camper applications a little later than we normally do, as we gather more information about new or different regulations for the upcoming summer.

We will be running a smaller camp in 2022 than we have in the past to keep everyone in the Camp Kennebec community healthy, and comply with provincial and local public health regulations and Ontario Camps Association Covid guidelines.  If your camper is a returner from 2019 or would have been a camper in our 2020 or 2021 seasons, you will receive an email in November from Camp explaining how and when to access our camper applications.

We will open our camper application system for new campers early in the new year.  If you would like us to contact you when our camper application system is open, please send us an email at info@campkennebec.com and we will add you to our list of families to contact in the new year.  To speak with one of our directors, please call 613-335-2114 or email info@campkennebec.com.  To learn more about Camp Kennebec, please visit our parent, camper and expert testimonials and other key pages on our site.

We look forward to welcoming your camper to camp next summer.
