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.

The hot tub is always ready to go.
Try the climbing wall, the low ropes course or archery.
New at the Spring Weekend we offer a 2 hour painting night.
Canoeing is featured at the September Weekend and sometimes the water is still warm enough for a swim!
Relax by the lake where there are plenty of Muskoka chairs ready for you.
Saturday evening we often will do a craft like tie - dying and then have an outdoor campfire, weather permitting. Line dancing has also proved to be a popular evening activity.

Accommodation is camp style which means that you are sharing a cabin with 2 or 3 other women.

• 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.

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

Vegetarian options are always available.

Women 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.
