OUR STORY

A playground of endless forests and crystal-clear lakes.

In 1936 on a cool, misty morning, Lou Handler and Omer Stringer paddled a red canoe across the still waters of South Tea Lake in Algonquin Park. They had a vision for a special place. One with countless outdoor activities, a community of soon-to-be lifelong friends and a place where kids were encouraged to learn, play and grow.

They found a children’s village, they found Camp Tamakwa.

OUR VALUES

When you get the opportunity to spend your summers in the beauty of Algonquin Park you just can’t help but want to make the world around you a better place.
