Tapawingo is an aboriginal word for “place of joy or happiness”.
True to our camp name, Tapawingo Trails Camp aims to provide a camp for girls that encourages the cultivation and practice of virtues in an atmosphere of joy and friendship. Surrounded by nature, the girls have the opportunity to make new friendships, and through their participation in various activities, they learn a spirit of service and generosity.
Tapawingo Trails Camp 2021:
We have created a 2021 camp program that is simple, eligible within the current government Covid restrictions, and provides the LITs with an opportunity to spend time together in nature building friendships. There are two elements to this year's camp program - a Camp-in-a-Box and a Hike:
Each Camper and LITs will receive a Camp-in-a-Box in the mail that is filled with fun items that promote the Tapawingo Trails spirit of friendship and service. The boxes will be sent through Canada Post should arrive at the camper's home a couple of weeks in advance of the official camp hike dates (see below).
Campers will meet in groups for a half day hike and activities. LITs and staff will each meet together and share a full-day hike and activities together.
Calgary Daily Hike Dates:
Tuesday, August 10th through to Thursday August 12th
Edmonton Daily Hike Dates:

All Hike Days will follow the COVID-19 restrictions/protocols in place from the Government of Alberta at the time of the events.
