The Adventure Starts Here


Experience the Extraordinary

The Camp Kahuna Sleep Away Camp combines traditional camp activities like swimming, fishing, cooperative games, and camp-wide themed events with the extraordinary. We have had visits from internationally recognized BMX Bike  Stunt Teams, rock bands like the Spoons, Kings and Glass Tiger, Olympic medal winners, magicians, animal experts and athletes like Pinball Clemons. Every year, we search for presenters who inspire and motivate our campers. We strive to exceed your expectations.

A Typical Kahuna Overnight Program

We develop unique programs every summer that will inspire children to pursue leadership. Everyone has the potential to be a leader. First, however, children must understand how to use their gifts to help themselves and help others.

We have seen tremendous personal growth in the campers who attend Camp Kahuna. We help them develop the characteristics of a leader: respect, responsibility, taking the initiative, integrity and trust. We help them build resiliency and become self-advocate. We do this through the activities and workshops we provide.

Our Staff

Our staff is dedicated to the campers who attend Camp Kahuna. They are hand-picked by Scott Graham and his leadership staff. We want individuals who model and teach leadership. Most of our staff are university-age and have had summer camp experience. They all have their police checks and first aid and CPR training.

Scott Graham, director of Camp Kahuna, has received awards from the Governor General of Canada and is a bestselling author of six children’s books and tours in Canada, Europe and the UK, teaching students leadership and anti-bullying skills. No other camp in Canada offers the same leadership and direction as Camp Kahuna.

Camp Meals
We strive to give our campers incredibly delicious and nutritious meals. We buy our food, and it is cooked at camp. We offer our campers food they like, but that is nutritious. The kids eat in our mess hall for all meals. If there are specific allergies, we try our best to meet campers’ particular needs. All meals are nut-free, and we have a vegetarian option and make accommodations for gluten-sensitive diets. We will have fruit/snacks available at supervised times during the day in case a camper is hungry before a meal.
We Will Surpass Your Expectations
My staff and I will do everything possible to meet your expectations and surpass them. We provide a unique camp program, an extremely dedicated staff, a camp nurse, excellent, nutritious food, daily camp emails, and a beautiful, safe venue close to home.

We realize for some parents; it is a big step to let their children go off on their own to camp for a week. We appreciate your trust and will ensure your children are well fed, cared for and safe. We go beyond what is expected to provide a fantastic week of summer camp. Your child will return home with experiences and stories that will be shared for years.

We look forward to seeing you at camp.
