Keeping parents and kids together

Family camps offer many of the same features as traditional camps. Counsellors engage children in a range of structured activities; other programs are geared to adults.

Time is also set aside for parents and their children to participate in activities with other families.

Family camps are a wonderful way for families to get out and enjoy nature together. There are many camps throughout northern Canada that allow families to interact with the natural world and enjoy each other's company at the same time. It can be a way for families to grow together in ways not possible anywhere else.

Family Camp is the perfect end to your summer and will allow you to connect with your family and friends and enjoy an incredible weekend together before the school year begins.  For those with young kids, this is also a perfect opportunity to prepare your soon-to-be-campers for their first experience at residential summer camp.  It will also help parents understand how incredible camp is and how much fun their kids will have in a safe and nurturing environment like Camp Tamakwa in Algonquin Park.

Tamakwa Family Camp will be an unbelievable weekend of fun with those you love most in the place we love most.  This is the perfect opportunity for parents to be campers for the first time or to relive camper days of years past.  As part of a cabin group with other families, you will be creating meaningful friendships and lasting memories together.  The schedule will include a fantastic mix of kid-oriented, parent-oriented and family-oriented activities. Other weekend highlights will of course include spirited sing songs, evening programs, wonderful food, a Tamakwa-classic medley marathon relay race, music, lots of laughs, and non-stop campfires.  This will be a weekend in beautiful Algonquin Park you won’t want to miss.
