During the summer, Camp Tamakwa operates as a private co-ed residential children’s ontario summer camp, an all-around recreational wonderland for our campers and staff. Located in Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario, Tamakwa is a 2.5 hour drive from Toronto. Tamakwa is basically the sole user of South Tea Lake, a picturesque lake, approximately one square mile in size. In the middle are three islands, including “Treasure Island”, a traditional destination for long distance swims, about half a mile from camp’s shore.
In the off-season, Tamakwa provides the perfect venue for outdoor education, leadership development and team building by school groups, organizations, conferences, corporations, not to mention an incredible backdrop for beautiful Algonquin weddings and family retreats.
Nestled along the winding shoreline of South Tea Lake, just minutes from Algonquin Park’s West Gate in Ontario, Tamakwa is noted for its strikingly picturesque and secluded setting. Accessible only by water, Tamakwa’s long lakefront and sloping forested hills offer the true essence of living in the northern woods, while in the comfort of well-maintained accommodations.
Tamakwa offers a wide range of recreational facilities, most prominently the surrounding natural Algonquin wilderness. In close proximity are cookout sites, waterfalls, islands, a beaver dam, adjoining lakes and streams, hiking & biking trails, and numerous other natural sites to be explored and enjoyed.
Our website depicts all the incredible activities available at Tamakwa throughout the summer and most, if not all, can be available for our rental groups. Groups can be arranged and scheduled with or without Tamakwa staff or instructors but a group of Tamakwa support staff will always be available in the off-season. Certain activities require specialized supervision (i.e. lifeguards, canoe guides, nurses, certified specialists in Ropes Course & Climbing Wall operation, Canoeing, Sailing, Windsurfing, etc).
