Arrival and Departure

Transportation & Airport Runs

Parents are responsible for providing transportation to/from Camp Takodah for their campers at their own expense. If your child is flying to camp, we can provide transportation for them from the Boston Logan International Airport ($100 round-trip) during the following time-frames only:

  • Opening Days: 10:30 AM – 2:30 PM
  • Closing Days: 2:00 – 6:00 PM

If you prefer to send your camper outside of these time-frames, you’re responsible for securing your own transportation to Camp Takodah. Please contact the Camp Office at least three weeks before your session to arrange transportation and pay the transportation fees.


Opening & Closing Day Procedures

We will operate according to our normal Opening and Closing Day Procedures except for the following:

  • Parents/guardians will receive their cabin numbers 24 hours before arrival. Your cabin number determines your 30-minute check-in window. Odd-numbered cabins will arrive at 1:00 PM, and even-numbered cabins will arrive at 1:30 PM. Families with campers in both odd- and even-numbered cabins will arrive at 1:00 PM.
  • Everyone will receive COVID screening questions upon arrival. Anyone with symptoms will be refused entry to Camp Takodah.
  • Everyone will be required to practice face-masking and physical distancing.
  • Only one parent/guardian per camper will be permitted to enter their cabin.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to have a Kona Snow Cone and Ice Cream truck this year because of the new COVID safety guidelines. Please make sure your camper eats lunch before arriving at camp, as their first meal will be dinner that day.


Police Notification

Local officials have prohibited line-ups on Fitzwilliam Road/119 and the camp lane for public safety reasons. Please plan your trip so you arrive in Richmond no earlier than your scheduled 30-minute check-in time. You will not able to exit your car until your scheduled 30-minute check-in time so there is no benefit to arriving early.
