Family Camp Program

You get to choose your own pace and activities. Some families keep themselves busy running from activity to activity, while other families spend their time reading or swapping stories in rocking chairs overlooking Cass Pond.

Takodah staff will organize events and activities that appeal to all age groups. We also invite families to take the lead in organizing programs to share with other families. Maybe you could start up a morning running club, lead a special art project, or organize a golf outing. Contact Ryan, Camp Director, if you want to discuss an idea.

We have several staff teams to support the Family Camp Program:

Waterfront – With one of New England’s most beautiful waterfronts, we invite you to enjoy swimming and boating on Cass Pond.

Adventure – Challenge yourself to develop teamwork or achieve personal goals on our extensive low and high ropes courses, including the climbing tower and giant swing.

Hobby Nook – Discover your inner-artist as you enjoy many different mediums of arts, with everything from candling to watercolor painting.

Youth Programs – Our youth programs crew will provide supervision and programming to your children during designated times so you can focus on your own interests.

Trip Programs – Our trip programs staff will arrange a variety of day trips for both youth/teens and adults.

In addition to regularly scheduled activities, there will be special events, such as the annual triathlon and the staff versus camper softball game.

As the sun sets over Cass Pond, the fun will just be getting started with entertaining evening programs:
