Camp Tamakwa provides a unique life experience for children. In operation since 1936, we take great pride in our never-ending progress to meet the needs of our campers and fulfill the expectations of our parents.
Founded in Ontario’s pristine Algonquin Park, Tamakwa offers a well-rounded outdoor program. Physically, the Algonquin camp facility is in totally restored refurbished condition. Tamakwa is an intimate Algonquin camp where everyone knows each other. Cabin groups are purposely small. Above all, Tamakwa is known for its spirit. Singing, cheering, campfires and traditional camping values are the mainstays of our Algonquin camp life. These values provide an important balance to the highly technological lifestyles of modern day urban children.
While we offer one of the most diversified outdoor recreational programs available, we stress the development and growth of our campers both individually and collectively in a close-knit cabin group.
Ease into overnight camp with one of our amazing introductory sessions. Whether you choose the 1 Day Tamakwa Teaser, Mini Weekend Session, 2 week session or even our Family Camp Weekend, there are plenty of options to give you a feel for the joys of residential summer camp. Come experience Camp Tamakwa’s 80+ years of rich tradition, history and unparallelled camp spirit!
