Over 60 years
Camp Carowanis was founded in 1958 by a group of 8 dedicated doctors, at a time when diabetic children were being turned away from all summer camps due to the complexity of their care. The camp rented different sites for a few years, then had the opportunity to purchase the Ste-Agathe-des-Monts site. Over the past 63 years, more than 15,000 children and 3,000 staff members have walked the grounds of Carowanis.
