Tamakwa Experiences was born out of a passion for Algonquin Park and all things camp. A collaboration and brainchild of Roots co-founder Michael Budman and Architect Diane Bald, and entrepreneurs, Tara and Matt Soloway, founders of LUXE Destination Weddings and Family Vacations, Tamakwa Experiences is creating a new standard for camp experiences and celebrations in Algonquin Park.
Our team is a collective of fun loving and passionate camp people, experience curators and wellness gurus. We offer full-service planning designed to ensure that each experience we create is as unique as our guests.
Tamakwa Experiences specializes in unique, stress-free camp weddings, retreats, outdoor experiential school education, and niche group escapes all hosted at beautiful Camp Tamakwa on South Tea Lake in Algonquin Park. Located 2.5 hours north of Toronto, we provide a natural setting for people to unplug, reconnect with each other, and escape the busyness that technology brings into our daily lives. Unlike a traditional event venue, every experience we create is inspired by the beauty and spirit of our setting in Algonquin Park.
Led by our creative muse, Diane Bald, former Roots Design Director, the camp aesthetic is a mix of rugged and refined, vintage and contemporary, and is all inspired by the natural surroundings. Our rustic comfortable wood cabins each have their own unique features, many with camper-style bunk beds and shared washroom facilities. We do not have AC or 500 thread count sheets, but we do have priceless views of South Tea Lake and the authentic sounds of nature in Algonquin Park…and an experience you will not find anywhere else in the world.
