2021 CAMP TAPAWINGO: Closure Update

YWCA Toronto’s Camp Tapawingo will remain closed to youth campers in 2021. We are in the process of re-designing camp to ensure greater alignment with YWCA Toronto’s new Strategic Plan that underscores the importance of poverty reduction and racial inclusion. We remain committed to empowering youth with a positive and inclusive camp experience for all.
Our aim is to launch an updated camp program when it is fully safe to do so, hopefully in 2022.

Family Camp/Mother and Daughter Weekend


Appreciate camp with your entire family or with your daughter! A great way to kick off the summer season with the mother/daughter weekend and introduce camp to your daughter. The family camp is a fantastic way to celebrate the end of summer and the beginning of the fall season. Both weekends are a wonderful way to create lots of memories for you and your family. Join us!

Accommodation is camp style. For family camp each family has their own cabin and for mother/daughter families share a cabin with another family.

• The beds are bunk beds but we don’t need to use the top bunks!
• Cabins all have electricity and some form of heat.

Bathrooms are in nearby buildings.

Meals are home cooked with lots of variety. In addition to the main dishes there are a variety of salads and fresh fruit, as well as home-made baked goods.
We serve meals buffet style for your enjoyment.

Vegetarian options are always available but we appreciate knowing ahead of time.

Families are responsible for their own transportation. Camp is a 2 hour drive from Toronto. If you decide to take the bus we are happy to pick you up at the bus station in Parry Sound.


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