  • About

    Camp Kawartha is a not-for-profit, award-winning, year-round learning centre dedicated to promoting environmental awareness, sustainability, and leadership to children, youth and adults.

    Nestled in the heart of the Kawarthas, on the south shore of Clear Lake, our outdoor education centre offers a scenic and relaxing venue for your group’s next weekend retreat, conference, or team building program.

    Throughout the Fall, Winter & Spring (from Labour Day weekend in September to mid-June), we provide groups of 25-150 people with exclusive use of our site for weekend facility rentals. Amenities include fully-winterized cabins, central washroom building with private showers, large meeting hall with wood stove, dining hall with stone fireplace, in-house catering using fresh local ingredients, two meeting rooms with tables & chairs, WIFI, outdoor amphitheater / campfire circle overlooking the lake, outdoor activity areas, and 186 acres of beautiful land to explore the natural world and learn about the environment.

    During the school year, we provide curriculum-linked outdoor education programs for students in grades K-12, and during the summer we offer day camps for ages 4-8, and overnight camps for ages 6-17.

    At our Environment Centre in Peterborough, we also offer environmental education programs, day camps for ages 4-12, day or evening facility rentals, and eco-mentorship programs for student teachers. See our listing under Attractions & Events.

    When you choose Camp Kawartha, you are helping to support outdoor & environmental education programs for youth.
