Day Camp Activities

Camp TawingoOur Day Camp Activities make full use of Camp Tawingo's outstanding facilities. Both waterfront and land-based activities are a part of each day.

Day Campers are assigned to a cabin at the beginning of each session. Cabins divide their days between planned activities, such as swimming and other waterfront activities, and individually-chosen activities. Some campers may choose to spend time at our amazing Arts & Crafts area while others may wish to do something like Archery. All equipment, including paddles and PFDs, are provided for the campers.

All activities take place at Camp Tawingo and are lead by Tawingo's caring staff. We do not send out campers on off-site field trips or hire people to come in and entertain them. Campers have a tremendous amount of choice right here on the premises. Camp Tawingo is a wonderfully safe place for children to enjoy and explore.

Each Day Camp week has a different theme so that the campers who register for more than one week experience new and fun activities each session.

third year and we expect him to continue to enjoy summer camp for many years
to come.   

From the time we arrived your friendly Counsellors helped with parking; the
check-in process was pleasant and efficient and we were very pleased to
meeting Aidan's Counsellor, Robertson, in Cabin No. 6.  Everything was
ship-shape and Aidan was brimming with confidence and talked non-stop took
about his experiences as he insisted on taking us on a tour of the camp in
the rain.  From the waterfront, to the dining hall, along to "Swamp" cabin,
to where the tribal counsel takes place, he waved at Counsellors along the
way and seems to have absorb and embrace the values, the traditions, and the
rituals of camp life.   A refreshing break from computers/ digital media, et

We have heard that "Tawingo wrote the book about how to run a Summer Camp"
- We believe it.  Keep doing what you are doing.  
A very sincerely thank you. "
