YMCA Camp Kanata

Set on 150 rolling, wooded acres outside of Wake Forest, Camp Kanata offers an exciting overnight camp experience for kids from 6 to 15. There is also a day camp option available.

Our kids have attended Kanata's week-long summer camp now a few times and loved it every single time.

My son loved this experience! He was a bit unsure about going to his first away camp, but the counselors were caring and gentle from the moment we got there. Lots of fabulous activities (archery is the new favorite thing). highly recommend.
