Fall Outing


Camp Kanata

Fall Outing at Camp Kanata is an awesome way to kickstart a great year with your Crew! Built on 150 rolling, wooded acres outside of Wake Forest, Camp Kanata offers a fun experience for dads and kids. 

Whether you're a First-Year experiencing your first Y Guides outing, a Second-Year proudly holding your lantern, or a Third-Year enjoying the Camp Kanata overnight, Fall Outing is something you won't want to miss. As a Crew, you can enjoy a cookout, archery, canoeing, BBs, the Triple Chill, the campfire ceremony and much more.
