Gianna and Asher’s Story

Do you remember the anticipation and excitement driving into Camp Takodah for the first time? The thrill of new friendships, the endless possibilities of a summer brimming with unforgettable experiences—it’s a sentiment shared by many of us. Whether as parents, alumni, or friends, we’ve all witnessed the profound impact Takodah can have on personal growth.
Take a stroll down memory lane with Gianna and Asher as they set off on their unforgettable Takodah journey almost a decade ago.

Look How They’ve Grown!

In the years since Gianna and Asher first told us about why they love Camp Takodah, a lot has changed in their lives. They have gone from children experiencing camp to leaders dedicated to creating fun, welcoming, and rich experiences for today’s children. During their time as campers, they were challenged, built life skills, felt a deep connection to others, and found a community where they truly belonged. As they lean on the lessons learned at camp and the relationships built, they bravely and confidently step into new adventures, knowing they will thrive.

Today’s campers are tomorrow’s leaders.

Like Gianna and Asher, over 1,400 campers grow stronger at Takodah each summer. Camp Takodah has always been more than a place of fun and adventure; it’s a sanctuary where friendships are forged, challenges are overcome, and lifelong memories are made. It’s where children not only discover their strengths, they learn the value of teamwork and find the courage to step out of their comfort zones.

But for many children, the opportunity to experience the transformative power of camp remains out of reach.

We need your help to ensure that every child has the chance to embark on their own journey of growth and discovery at Camp Takodah. By contributing to camp scholarships or “Camperships”, you provide financial assistance to families in need, allowing their children to attend camp and experience the same opportunities that you or your children once did. Your ongoing support ensures these opportunities remain accessible to all children, regardless of their financial circumstances.

Camp Takodah is a nonprofit organization that exists only because of donors like you. Every gift makes a difference.

Thank you for donating generously today!
