Family Camp


A unique opportunity for the entire family to join us for a week or weekend and enjoy all that camp has to offer. Each family has their own cabin and all meals are provided in our dining hall. Activities are offered on a rotating basis for parents and their children to attend. There will be one activity period each day for children to participate on their own, while parents have time to enjoy some quiet time.

***Please note that we are awaiting updated guidance on COVID protocols from Public Health for Summer 2022. YWCA Toronto will require all campers, families, CITs, volunteers and staff to be fully vaccinated.***

  • All cabins have electricity and some form of heat.
  • Bathrooms are in nearby buildings.

At Camp Tapawingo we recognize that participants have diverse food traditions and practices. By offering a variety of meals and dishes we aim to promote inclusion and sharing of cultures through food.

Breakfast and lunch are served buffet style and supper is served family style.

Vegetarian options are always available.

Camp Tapawingo is located on the protected shores of Georgian Bay, 6.5 km from the town of Parry Sound.

Families are responsible for their own transportation to Camp, which is a two hour drive from Toronto. If you decide to take the bus, we are happy to pick you up at the station in Parry Sound.
