Put your handy skills to the test. As a team you will help with maintenance of Camp Kinkora, from painting and scraping to light carpentry.

Mission

Camp Kinkora has been in existence since 1926 making it one of the oldest and most respected camps in Canada. While our facilities are the same throughout the year, the spirit of the camp grows from a collection of adventures, imaginations, experiences, and communities that venture her grounds year round. As such, we strive to maintain a values-based mission and identity to help foster community and growth for all ages, and we work hard with our partners and clients to foster these values in all that we do.
