Kahuna has become Halton’s most successful camp and the first choice for parents seeking an incredible camp experience for their children. We have directors at camp who ensure the quality of our camp program and staff meet the Kids 4 Kids high expectations. We want to exceed your expectations about program quality, safety protocols and staffing.

The Program

We combine traditional camp activities like campfires, swimming, fishing, cooperative games, and fort building with the extraordinary. Each week, we have theme days that include medieval, wacky hair, superhero and Olympic days, to name just a few. We also had presentations from individuals who entertain and role-model leadership. We have had musicians, actors, sports heroes, and animal experts entertain our campers. We have different performers every year to make your child’s experience extraordinary. Please note that we offer additional activities every year. The photos on this page represent some of our activities at past camps. They are not necessarily the activities we have every year. We are always looking for new experiences so our campers can have an incredible experience. We aim to create the best camp possible for the children and parents we serve.

Before and After Care is offered at our camp location from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m, parents must pick their children up from the camp parking lot.

Safety

We strive to have an extremely safe camp environment for our campers.

We ensure our senior staff have police checks and First Aid/CPR certificates.

We have lifeguards that maintain safety around the pool. Our leaders are either in the pool with our campers or are supervising on the deck. All eyes are on our campers when they are around water.

We have two camp directors who are always at camp, ensuring the campers are safe and our programs run well. Most camps have directors who travel from site to site. Our directors are at camp every day.

We have two 40-foot by 40-foot canvas tents to protect our campers from the weather. We take the campers to the main building if the weather is dangerous.

We have sunscreen, and water breaks daily to ensure our campers are protected from the sun and hydrated.

My staff are trained to give your children their undivided attention. Therefore, they are not distracted by electronics.

Our staff are individuals who have a passion for working with children. Many teachers and educational assistants have experience dealing with children of all ages.

A Day at Day Camp

Every week at camp is different. We have fun theme days and pack each day with events like the Kahuna Carnival, Joe-lynn: The World’s Greatest Hypnotist, Wet and Wild Day, Silly Science, and Messy Games. Each day also includes swimming, fishing, cooperative games, and leadership workshops. We guarantee your child will have an incredible camp experience.

We love creating camp adventures for children. We pull characters from Scott Graham’s books, creating a magical camp environment. We also have theme days each week. Here is an example of a typical theme day at camp. So, as you know, this is just one example of a typical day. Each year, we change activities to ensure our campers have new experiences.

We hope you will consider Camp Kahuna for your child’s camp experience. There is no other camp like ours in Halton. When you come onto the camp property, it is like going to Muskoka. We offer you the best in camp supervision and programming. You may find a less expensive camp, but if you are looking for quality and a camp that puts your children first, you have come to the right camp.
