Each year, dozens of American & international campers make their way to Camp Kennebec, as many families find our unique program, flexible scheduling, top notch staff and spectacular setting to be irresistible. Add a weak Canadian dollar to the equation and our US & international campers find Canadian camps to be quite a bargain too. And best of all, prior to the pandemic, coming to camp was easy. All campers needed was a valid passport and adequate medical insurance coverage while in Canada.
BUT COVID-19 MAY MAKE CROSSING THE BORDER MORE CHALLENGING THAN USUAL
Covid-19 has had a major impact on travel to and from Canada. So please check with the Canadian Border Services Agency before you finalize your plans to ensure that your Kennebecer is allowed to cross the border and meets all health, safety and quarantine requirements.
Our American and international campers enjoy a special advantage that our Canadian families don’t. They save substantially when we convert our Canadian dollar camp fees into US dollars, euros or pounds. It wasn’t too long ago that one Canadian dollar was worth more than one American dollar. Now the Canadian dollar has weakened so that it is worth about $0.75 US. Now Americans currently save more than 30% off our camp rates. And don’t worry about exchange rates or calculating the right amount in Canadian dollars, your credit card will do that automatically for you.
Each summer we welcome campers from across the USA including Kennebecers from Michigan, New York, California, Washington, Iowa, Ohio, Virginia and Florida.
Camp Kennebec is an easy drive from New York, Michigan, Ohio and New England, and there are many direct flights from the USA and other international cities to Ottawa – Canada’s national capital – and a two-hour drive from Camp. Toronto’s Pearson Airport – Canada’s largest airport – is just three hours away. Call us and we will help with your travel arrangements.
If you’re planning on sending your son or daughter to camp and live outside the USA or UK, please check the Government of Canada website to see if your child may require a visa or any other special arrangements to enter Canada.
One thing we know for sure is that kids quickly become Kennebecers no matter where they’re from from.
