With one of the most diversified outdoor recreational programs available, Tamakwa campers and staff members enjoy 75 years of rich traditions, core values, family atmosphere, and camp spirit, all in a beautiful Algonquin Park setting.
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. But, Tamakwa’s magic has always been the intangible quality of warmth and camaraderie of a Algonquin camp family. 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.
Tamakwa is truly a camp for the new century with many modern features, but we pride ourselves on traditional values, skill development and camp spirit. Tamakwa’s traditions are still revered by campers and staff alike after 75 years and our core values are needed by kids today more than ever.
In addition to offering a co-ed residential camp, we also offer a Junior Tamakwans Camp for Grades 1-3 as well as a Family Camp.
