Reservations: A reservation form will be mailed out the second week in January to those who vacationed at Canaras during the 2015 eight week "Alumni" season.

If you wish to be added to the waiting list for Canaras, please contact our office at 315-229-5995 or email

Guest requests must be made by February 5, 2016 and will be considered and confirmed on an availability basis by March 4, 2016. A confirmed reservation guarantees your lodging at Canaras for the stipulated dates. The camp director reserves the right to change a specific building if necessary.

To assure Canaras covers expenses, empty beds must be kept to a minimum. During weeks of full occupancy, guests are expected to fill their cottage or pay for the vacant rooms in the building they requested, or agree to move to another location.

All campers wishing to bring an additional guest not listed on their reservation form must notify the Camp Director prior to arrival.

Prior to May 23 you must notify Dining & Conference Services at St. Lawrence University (315) 229-5995 if you are forced to cancel. After May 23, you must notify the camp director at (518) 891-4111.

Anyone who cancels or does not reserve space during the 2016 season will not receive an advanced reservation form for the 2017 season. If desired, you will be placed on a waiting list for that year. The purpose of this is to allow others the opportunity to vacation at Canaras.

Reservations for full weeks only (Saturday dinner through Saturday breakfast) will be accepted through June 1, 2016. Availability permitting, after June 1, reservations of 3 or more days will be accepted for the month of July. After July 1, reservations of 3 or more days will be accepted for July and August.
