Health & Safety

COVID-19 Update

Camp Takodah is working closely with the CDC, American Camp Association, YMCA of the USA, Governor of NH, NH Department of Health & Human Services, and local officials on developing guidelines that ensure the health and safety of everyone at camp this summer. While the uncertainty of the COVID pandemic is causing those guidelines to shift on an ongoing basis right now, our promise is that our new policies and procedures will not only meet the recommended guidelines but exceed them. We also promise to keep camper families informed as those guidelines begin to take shape. The safety of our campers and staff is, as always, our highest priority.

Health

Takodah’s commitment to the health and safety of every camper is unsurpassed. Camp should feel like an extension of your home; we care for your child and pay close attention to their well-being.

The best way to ensure that campers have a great summer is by making sure they are healthy. Our staff check in with campers individually each day to make sure they’re drinking lots of water, getting enough to eat, washing their hands, brushing their teeth, taking showers, changing clothes, using bug spray, applying sunscreen, and sleeping enough.

Our modern, well-equipped Health Center has an on-site nurse (registered nurse) and two health center assistants (first responders). In addition to dispensing your child’s medications, these experienced medical professionals provide excellent care to campers while regularly communicating with parents back home.

Safety

You’re entrusting us with the most precious people in your life, and that’s a responsibility we take very seriously. With a camping heritage that goes back 100 years, we’ve found that these are the ingredients to a safe camp experience:

  • Professional Team
  • Mature, Well-Trained, Responsible Cabin Leaders
  • Safe Activities
  • Healthy, Nutritious Food
  • Medical Professionals
  • Excellent Facilities

In addition, Takodah is licensed by the State of New Hampshire and accredited by the American Camp Association, meaning that we have undergone a thorough review (300+ standards) of our operation—from staff qualifications to emergency management.
