The Camp Tanamakoon Charitable Foundation, Inc

Camp Maple Leaf is operated by The Camp Tanamakoon Charitable Foundation, Inc – a registered Canadian charity.

Camp Tanamakoon is an overnight camp for girls in Algonquin Park, established in 1925.

For the past 37 years, Camp Tanamakoon has been owned and operated with care by Kim Smith and his family. As its senior Director, Kim has guided the complete re-construction and modernization of the Camp facility while ensuring that its core values and traditions are maintained and strengthened.

In 1995, The Camp Tanamakoon Charitable Foundation was established, with the original purpose of donating annually to women’s and children’s charities.

As our donations grew, we supported smaller, less known groups of children facing unique life challenges.

We began to recognize the need for these groups to have their own camp, where they could feel a special sense of belonging and call it their own. The challenge for these campers and their supporting organizations was to find the right site that could meet this need.

In 2015, Camp Maple Leaf was in the midst of its own transition and required a new organization to assume ownership if it was to continue. The Camp Tanamakoon Charitable Foundation was able to step up and fulfill that need, and thanks to the support of generous individual and organizational donors, it has been privileged to help carry on and enrich the legacy of Camp Maple Leaf ever since.

With the careful stewardship of the Camp Tanamakoon Charitable Foundation, Camp Maple Leaf is now embarking on an ambitious strategy to establish additional locations in Western and Atlantic Canada over the coming three years. Our goal is to triple our impact and make a difference in lives of more children and families across our nation who share unique life challenges.

For the broader Camp Tanamakoon family, the camp’s association with Camp Maple Leaf is a demonstration of how we all can make a positive impact on this world, and it is a wonderful opportunity to set a positive example to its campers as well.

Camp Maple Leaf is operated by The Tanamakoon Charitable Foundation, Inc – Registration #870125150RR0001.

The Camp Tanamakoon Charitable Foundation Inc (o/a Camp Maple Leaf) is honoured to continue and enrich this legacy of providing quality camp experiences to children who share unique life challenges, and children from Canadian Military Families.
