Get to know our program
Camp Kornder Saskatchewan was founded in 1956 and has provided countless summer memories for children with type 1 diabetes in Saskatchewan every summer since. Camp Kornder Saskatchewan is now partnered with Quest Camp at Christopher Lake.
Camp Kornder Saskatchewan takes place on the shores of the Christopher Lake, SK. The cabins are situated in two groups – the boys’ side and the girls’ side. Each of these beautiful, rustic cabins is equipped with bunk beds, electric lights and counsellor sleeping quarters.
About the Camp
Campers & Staff
Camp Kornder Saskatchewan accommodates 65 campers per session, ages 7 to 15.

This ensures that you will fully understand your camper’s experience before you leave them with us for the week.ossible for you and your camper, please contact the D-Camps team during your registration process to discuss alternative arrangements.
Counsellors and instructors
In partnership with Quest, the D-Camps team recruits, screens and trains a team of staff. The staff team all have standard first aid/CPR and attend a week-long training with a focus on camper care, medical processes and procedures for managing type 1 diabetes.
Many of our staff team live with type 1 diabetes and are living in the cabin group with your camper. Because we provide 24-hour supervision, this creates endless opportunities for your camper to learn from and relate to a young adult role model living with type 1 diabetes.
We are proud of our staff team at Camp Kornder Saskatchewan and they look forward to meeting you and your camper!
Led by Dr. Munier Nour from Royal University Hospital, our medical staff team (“Med Team”) is a dedicated, committed group of health-care professionals who understand how important the camp experience is for children and youth living with type 1 diabetes.
Campers will have the opportunity to experience many activities on Christopher Lake at Camp Kornder Saskatchewan! Activities include: tubing, waterskiing, canoeing, swimming, water trampoline and beach exploring! All activities that take place in the water are led by trained staff and supervised by lifeguards.
There is always something happening on land at Camp Kornder Saskatchewan! At any time, you might find campers enjoying the climbing wall, various sports, or the rock wall.
Campers can spend time focusing on arts-based programs like drama games, arts and crafts, talent shows and skit nights and learning about various cultures from around the world.
Outdoor living skills
While at camp, your camper will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in nature while hiking, canoeing, shelter-building, and taking part in building campfires.
Every night at Camp Kornder Saskatchewan, the whole camp community comes together to take part in activities like Capture the Flag, skit nights and talent shows. Twice a week, everyone at camp will gather around a campfire where we sing songs, see skits and reflect on our time at camp. These campfires are a highlight of the camp experience for many. Make sure to ask your camper about their favourite song. You might even get to hear it on the trip home!
