We are committed to giving kids the friendships, confidence, and character they need to reach their full potential — and providing their families with access and support to attend Camp Takodah programs.
Please plan to apply for a Campership no later than the priority deadline of March 1. However, in light of the COVID pandemic, we will be more flexible with the Campership Deadline this year — and we encourage families to apply even if they miss the priority deadline.

Campership recipients are encouraged to attend Opportunities Day. If your family is not able to attend Opportunities Day, then we hope you will consider asking your child to provide 10 hours of community service in your community before summer camp. This “pay it forward” philosophy of financial assistance has always been a core value at Takodah. In addition to giving your child a chance to “give back,” doing volunteer service will give them a greater sense of pride, satisfaction, and accomplishment. It will also teach them to take responsibility and work hard for something they care about.

Volunteers will help with preparing Takodah for summer camp through projects like setting up the waterfront, raking, spreading mulch, weeding, cleaning cabins, and painting. We will provide a free barbecue at 12:00 noon. Learn more!
If your family is not able to attend Opportunities Day, then we hope you will consider asking your child to provide 10 hours of community service in your community before summer camp. They could easily volunteer their time by raking leaves or shoveling snow for a neighbor, helping an elderly friend or family member, babysitting at no charge, taking part in a school volunteer project, or volunteering for an organization that interests them.
