Camp Takodah

takodahlakeKnown for our beautiful waterfront and fantastic staff, Camp Takodah is one of New England’s classic YMCA Resident Camps. Children have enjoyed Takodah camping programs since 1916. Though much has changed over those 90 summers, our essence remains intact: providing high quality camp programs driven by the needs of youth.

We have a long and rich history, deep traditions, and a program based on giving youth the skills to build friendships with integrity. Our classic two-week sessions emphasize growth through cabin living, building rich friendships, using the imagination, and YMCA character development.

The full range of camp activities includes swimming, boating, sailing, windsurfing, hobbies, visual and performing arts, high ropes course, nature, archery, riflery, sports, and special events. We also offer a one-week introductory “Mini Camp,” a coed introduction to overnight camp for 7 – 10 year olds.

Adventure Camp programs offer wilderness and travel experiences throughout New England for teens. Summer ends with one week of Family Camp at the end of August.

Spring and Fall see dozens of schools and youth groups partner with us for Outdoor Education programs, group retreats and getaways. We keep the adventure in learning alive using our beautiful lakeside and forest environment to explore ecology and our extensive ropes course for teambuilding.
