Unplug for the Summer

A unique aspect of Tamakwa is the un-plugged nature of living up in Algonquin Park.  That means no cell phones, iPad, or computers. In order to maintain this special tradition for our campers, we do not allow staff members to keep personal phones in camp. Cell phones are locked in the office, charged, and returned for days off only. Staff will have use of a computer and a public phone during their evening time off in “staff rec.”
