Camp Canwita is located on North Duff in Ames, Iowa.  This secluded day camp provides a wonderful nature setting for youth going into 1st grade through 8th grade offering exciting field trips, optional overnights, and active team games throughout the week as well as multiple swimming trips to the local pool. Throughout the summer we'll visit the Science Center, the Zoo, and several water parks.
