Updated June 6, 2021
We are working closely with the New Hampshire Department of Health & Human Services (NH DHHS) and the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) to ensure summer camp meets and/or exceeds all federal, state, and local health and safety laws, rules, and regulations.
Please note that Camp Takodah is ultimately required to follow the Overnight Camp Guidelines mandated by the NH DHHS. The CDC recently released updated guidance for overnight summer camps. If the NH DHHS adopts the new guidance from the CDC, then we will notify you right away of any changes to our COVID Safety Plan.
In addition to working with the NH DHHS and CDC, we have assembled a COVID Advisory Team of local medical experts to guide our COVID Safety Plan and provide ongoing advice and support throughout summer camp. We have also hired a COVID Safety Officer to ensure compliance with our COVID Safety Plan.
We strongly encourage you to become familiar with the COVID Safety Plan – along with the risks and benefits of summer camp – so you can make an informed decision about your participation in Camp Takodah this year.

If your camper is registered for 2+ consecutive sessions, then they will be required to stay with us at camp during the weekend(s) between those sessions (called changeover weekends). If your camper is enrolled in consecutive sessions this summer, then you don’t need to do anything to register them for the changeover weekend(s).
Please note: The changeover program is only available to campers attending 2+ consecutive sessions. We’re not able to accommodate additional campers.
Parents/guardians are prohibited from visiting or picking up campers during changeover weekend this year. We will be happy to schedule phone calls, Zooms, FaceTimes, and/or Skypes so that you can talk to your camper during the changeover weekend if you like.
The changeover program and activities will remain mostly the same except for prohibiting campers from taking field trips.
We will continue to offer laundry service to changeover campers through a local vendor. We will collect laundry from campers on Friday and then return it to them on Sunday. We will simply charge campers for the cost of the laundry (usually around $12). We will deduct the charge from their Camp Store account so please make that a consideration when depositing money for your camper.
Cabin Leaders will help campers move into their new cabins, make their beds, and store their personal belongings.
