Mark your calendars for our second Takodah Work WEEKEND [Friday, May 17 – Sunday, May 19]! This event is for anyone (alumni, community members, partners, parents, and more) 18 years of age or older who is able and willing to help us get camp set up for another summer. 

This winter has been brutal on camp’s property! There are a plethora of projects to complete such as grounds cleanup, painting, powerwashing, deep cleaning, small carpentry projects, program setup, and even kitchen duty. We know that many Takodians make for light work, so join us at Takodah for a weekend full of completing satisfying projects, eating delicious food, and hanging with camp friends!
