Stronger, More Independent and Outgoing

When we receive emails like this, we are reminded there is so much more to learn at camp than sterning a canoe! (which all Tamakwans learn to do as well…)

Dear Vic, Craig and Margot,

It’s been one day since my children returned from Algonquin Park and it is clear that the magic of Tamakwa hasn’t changed in over 30 years since I was a camper. My children returned physically stronger, more independent, more outgoing and more appreciative of what they have.

While they have little desire to go back to school, they will return better prepared to tackle the obstacles that await because of their shared experiences this summer.

Thank you Tamakwa!


Tamakwans Talk” was created to give Tamakwans a chance to share how Tamakwa has affected their lives (or the lives of their children).

Deciding to send your children away for the summer can be difficult. Choosing the right summer camp for your family is incredibly challenging. As Camp Directors, we eat, sleep and breathe Tamakwa and passionately believe that sending your children to spend a summer with us will positively change their lives forever. We could (and sometimes we have) talked to you about camp for hours. But, we want this column to be written by our alumni, campers, staff and parents, to be shared with prospective families to help them make the choice if Tamakwa is right for them. There is nothing more valuable than real stories and lasting memories shared by you.

Please email us at howhow@tamakwa.com and share today!
