“a children's village”
Rising out of the forest, Camp Tamakwa is a “children’s village” — where campers live and play in a safe, creative, nurturing habitat — and where they are encouraged to do what they do best….be themselves. Founded in 1936 by naturalist Lou Handler and celebrated canoeist Omer Stringer, Tamakwa is summer home to 250-300 boys and girls — ages 7 to 16 — and over 130 staff. Tamakwa campers are mostly Canadian and American with some campers coming from Mexico, Israel, England, France, Belgium, Italy, and Spain. Canadian campers are mostly from the Toronto area and Americans are mostly from the suburbs of Detroit, but also many are from New York, California, Illinois, Florida, and everywhere in between. It's also the film location and setting of Indian Summer!
