2017 RESIDENTIAL CAMP APPLICATION IS NOW OPEN!

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE ABOUT REGISTRATION FOR SUMMER 2017

  • We are both overwhelmed and humbled by the “avalanche of applications” we have received, to date, for 2017: from returning camper families and new families excited to experience a summer at Camp Tawingo…such an avalanche, in fact, that 2nd session was filled before we even opened to new families; and many more sessions were filled within hours of opening to the general public.
  • Due to this incredible influx, our on-line application has been disabled.  Despite this, we still strongly recommend that you take a few minutes to complete a hardcopy of the application and submit it by e-mail or fax.  Experience has shown that, each year, we are able to take several campers off of the Waiting Lists; additionally, we hope more spaces to open up as we continue to review and organize the “avalanche of applications” received on Monday.  (Click on the Facebook icon on this page if you wish to see a photo of Shelley holding the stack of applications we received on the 28th, alone!)
  • We are exceedingly grateful that so many of you wish to have your camper here with us this coming summer.  It is our hope that there is room for all of you.  Please, please don’t despair if you are unsure, at this point, if there is or will be a spot for your camper.  We will have a clearer picture of availability as we work through Monday’s applications.  And remember, it is a wise choice in our books to get onto a Waiting List, sooner rather than later.  Not only does it not cost a thing, but – as mentioned above – we are often able to take a number of campers off of the Waiting Lists for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Sessions, each year.

SUMMER CAMPS MAKE KIDS RESILIENT

Sending children to a residential, or day camp, builds resilience.
Published on February 5, 2012 by Michael Ungar, Ph.D. in Nurturing Resilience.
I recently spoke to 300 camp directors about how to make children more resilient to life stress.
 
Summer camps, we discovered, are perfect places to help children optimize their psychosocial development...

Tawingo Talkback!

" You did a marvellous job and kudos to all those excellent counsellors you select. Matthew just can't say enough about everything: from how good the food was to how kind everyone was, how he felt so good and most of all accepted. Keep up the good work! "
