From the website:

Who Are We? We Are Community Builders
We are passionate about children and safe places for them to have fun. We are people who care about nature and the environment.
In 1994, after decades of saving and seven years of searching, the members of Champlain and Maple Leaf Divisions of Girl Guides purchased 100 acres of beautiful property in Springwater Township to build a Guide Camp of our own. We named the property CAMP TEWATENO a Wendat (Huron) word for sisterhood.
Hundreds of girls and adults participate in Guiding in Champlain and Maple Leaf Divisions, the co-owners of Camp Tewateno. Their boundaries encompass a large part of Simcoe County – from Ivy to Oro Station, and from Bradford to Elmvale. These girls and women make a visible impact in your community. Through their business associations, their community service work, and their home life, they are examples of good citizens locally, nationally and globally, but the camp is not for Girl Guides alone. It is also widely used by Scouts Canada groups, schools, churches, and a wide range of organizations.
Camp Tewateno provides a place to teach our young people to live in harmony, with each other and with nature. They learn life and survival skills, and learn about the natural environment and how to preserve it. They develop leadership and practical skills to guide them in today’s changing society. Many friendships are forged in the glow of evening campfires in a safe, nurturing and supportive environment. We have built Camp Tewateno with a heritage theme, giving participants a chance to experience briefly what it was like to live in bygone days in a variety of accommodations.
