Camp Can-Aqua is an overnight kids summer camp that recognizes the value of each individual. Understanding the power of the imagination, we create a world that is engaging, inclusive and full of wonder, where children develop a strong sense of comfort and belonging.
What can you expect from this summer camp? A welcome environment where relationship building is our foundation and independence is the starting gate. Kids are in the driver seat as they move around the camp and programs electively on their own, developing friendships and gaining skills at a wide range of thrilling activities.
Exceptional instruction opportunities, partnered with a remarkable community makes Camp Can-Aqua a unique and special place.
Located just outside of Bancroft, Ontario, we’re a proud member on the Ontario Camps Association (OCA) and the Canadian Camping Association (CCA). We are also proud to be one of North America’s Top Summer Camps.
BIG NEWS IN 2024!!
Can-Aqua has big plans in store for kids this summer. We have finalized the development of a 16 element arial course. Construction begins April 1st and is scheduled to be completed in the first week of May. We can’t wait to introduce our campers to this new, exciting edition to the camp experience.
For over 40 years, Camp Can-Aqua has been successfully giving our campers control of their days through the use of our program board. Each evening during dinner, campers head to the board and choose their next day’s adventure. We love this system, as not it give kids a sense of ownership and control over their day. In addition, it teaches the importance of compromise as kids will not always get everything they want.
A typical day is comprised of four activity periods, a single period of free time and an evening program. Once signed up, attendance lists are created for the following day and campers are expected to be at their activities ready and on time.

Our exceptional instruction is partnered with some terrific and creative options so kids can choose between improving a skill or splashing around.
