“Every year the girls come back relaxed and feeling wonderfully confident and independent. And I feel good that they are being so well cared for in a safe and nurturing environment.” Janet Biehn, mother of two campers
“At Tapawingo my daughter spends happy days outside trying new things, mastering new skills and building wonderful friendships. She comes home glowing. I am so grateful to be able to give her this incredible opportunity that has already changed her life.” Fatima Dias
“Counsellors were helpful and caring during my daughter’s stay.” Renee Lee
“I have nothing but glowing things to say about this camp. Your orientation to parents and children was outstanding. I felt very comfortable sending her after the open house. You just get an overall warm feeling about the camp and that comes from the staff. Thank you so much for everything.” - Nancy Andrews

New Campers’ Night is fun way for new campers to meet. We play games, sing songs and meet some Camp staff. This will be held in Toronto. Invitations are sent in the spring.
Open House is another way to explore Camp. Join us at our Open House for a tour and a chance to meet some of the Camp staff. We will show you what Camp is all about! (Camp has a policy of no visitors while girls are at camp.) The 2018 Open House will take place on Saturday, June 23, 2018.
At YWCA Camp Tapawingo keeping your child safe and healthy is a priority. All staff are trained in first aid and receive comprehensive training on all facets of their job. Fully qualified staff supervise our activity areas at the waterfront, climbing wall, on canoe trips and in the cabins.
Our food service is under the supervision of a qualified chef. Meals are nutritious and delicious. Birthdays are celebrated with a birthday cake for your daughter and her cabin. Food allergies and special diets can generally be accommodated if the Camp is consulted in advance. Contact us if your daughter requires a nut-free environment.
