Get to know your way around camp!
As a traditional overnight summer camp, RKY has 16 camper cabins spread throughout our 15-acre property full of natural Ontario forest and plenty of waterfront space looking out to Eagle Lake.
As we improve and update the camp, we want to thank all of our generous donors, as none of these changes would be possible without you!
Our cabins are rustic and reflect the spirit of a traditional summer camp. Most cabins have been replaced in the last 10 years. 8 of our cabins are insulated for Year Round accommodation.
After a successful fundraising campaign in 2019, RKY built an 8000 sq/ft Dining Hall with a modern commercial kitchen.
This is a year-round facility that has a capacity of 240 people. It was designed as a summer camp dining hall that duels as an ideal event and conference facility.
The name "Homestead" comes from the generous support we received from the founder of Homestead Landholdings, Mr. Britton A. Smith.
Thanks to long-time RKY supporters, Jim and Maryln Stewart, RKY was able to begin the final phase of our Revitalization Campaign in December of 2020.
With their generous donation, we have been renovating our former dining hall into a year-round Outdoor Centre. The focus of this facility will be our Out-Trip programming, leadership workshops, staff and office space as well as accommodation and medical rooms.
Each room serves a dual function for our Summer Camp and Outdoor Centre programs. This project was completed on schedule in Spring of 2022.
Definitely a highlight for many campers, swimming in Eagle Lake is an exciting part of camp life. All participants, regardless of swimming ability, must complete a RKY swim assessment prior to swimming without a PFD at RKY.
With canoes, kayaks, an enclosed swimming area, and the iconic RKY jumping tower, the waterfront is the place to be on a hot summer day.
