Camp Kawartha Master Plan

Camp Kawartha is a year-round facility with a long history as a summer camp with programming based on environmental sustainability. Over the last few decades, the Camp’s programming has grown and strengthened, but its infrastructure and facilities have fallen behind.

The Camp Kawartha Site and Facilities Master Plan documents the current state of the Camp’s physical resources and programming, and proposes a number of physical and programmatic improvements geared toward establishing a guiding vision which is economically as well as environmentally sustainable to guide the camp’s future.

Key elements of this demonstration plan include an expanded central hub to include new, interconnected dining, kitchen, dormitory and washroom/support facilities; a renewed and expanded east cabin cluster to complement the existing west cabin cluster; an enhanced upper and lower “common” area to improve the natural character and identity of the camp; a site-wide ecological restoration effort; a rearranged entry and parking arrangement; and, selective demolition, removal and upgrades to the balance of existing facilities.
