Camp Kagama is a non-profit summer camp that was established in 1936. The intimate camp is situated along banks of the St. Lawrence River, on Morrison Island, and hosts just 48 campers per session. At Camp Kagama, campers are encouraged to enjoy nature and form friendships regardless of race, creed, or religious beliefs. Over 23,000 campers have attended Camp Kagama since they opened, with countless friendships and memories formed as a result.
“After 2 years away from camp sessions, we were very happy to welcome so many young people to Camp Kagama this season. We actually had more campers this year than we had in 2019!
We have been very fortunate to have the support of the community, service organizations like the Kinsmen of Cornwall and some very special volunteers who offer their time and skills.
Finding staff was a challenge this year, but we were able to secure nearly all of our team in the nick of time – except for lifeguards. Unfortunately, we had to get through a few sessions with no life-guards, so we had to be creative in finding ways to keep everyone cool in this summer’s very hot days.
Next year’s camping season is already on the horizon, and we’re excited to build on the success of this summer. We hope 2022 will be a launching board into the future of traditional camping at Camp Kagama where kids can be kids.” – David Wattie, President.
