Welcome. For 59 years we have offered wonderful summer camping experiences for boys and girls from Ontario and around the world. In a safe and beautiful outdoor setting, with competent, enthusiastic leaders, children have the opportunity to grow as individuals through wholesome activity in all areas of outdoor living.

Take a tour around the site and see why we believe that everyone can grow in the richness and beauty of the Tawingo community. Camp's strength is in the friends who frequent it.

 

#LetThereAlwaysBeCamp

To our dear Tawingo community!

Most days at 11:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. we post fun activities for our campers to see/do while they stay safe at home...activities that, we hope, will help keep them connected to Camp and build excitement for the possibility of our 60th summer in 2020! We’re calling our Virtual Camp, #LetThereAlwaysBeCamp. And we’d love you to join in the fun! To do so simply go to our Facebook page and/or follow us on Instragram (@camptawingo) and enjoy! Let there always be a song, a song down in your heart; let there always be a smile, for everyone you see; let there always be a laugh to share with everyone; let there always be some love, some love to give away...and...Let there always be Camp...in our minds and hearts, at home or here...

60th STAFF REUNION - June 27th, 2020

Story Pole

Some things may have changed in 60 years:

Three Story Poles, built by the three different sets of hands, anchored in a few different locations around Camp...

And, yet, so much of what makes for an essential (and exciting!) Tawingo experience remains:

The shy, nervous camper gaining confidence as s/he/they learn to live in harmony with one another and the land...becoming a Turtle, a Fox, and perhaps, even an Eagle!

Come add to the Tawingo story this summer...

 

 

 This summer's 60th Staff Reunion is a day event, only. The details are as follows:

tawingo tsmallArrive any time after 10:00AM; get and give lots of hugs; register outside of the White House;

SUMMER CAMPS MAKE KIDS RESILIENT

Sending children to an overnight, 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...
