About Camp Takajo

Above all else, our goal is to help boys grow into young men of strong moral character. The qualities represented by our twelve Arch Ideals are emphasized and reinforced throughout all aspects of the Camp Takajo experience. These twelve ideals embody the spirit of the camp and are the precepts by which we live.

By partnering with parents, we strengthen the values you are teaching every day in your home. At the same time, sending your son to camp for seven weeks provides him with a rare opportunity to develop self-reliance and independence. Being in a nurturing, supportive environment, but away from the immediate comforts of home and family, a boy gains confidence from learning new skills and navigating new situations – and, yes, occasionally dealing with a little adversity!

We Believe...

We believe that boys need structure. Our programs are designed to be developmentally age appropriate. As boys get older, their program allows them increased choices so they can pursue their maturing interests and specialize in specific areas.

Summer camp is about making the best friends of your life. Summer camp is about making the best friends of your life.

We believe in a well-rounded, diverse program that includes sports, waterfront activities, hobbies, skills, and pioneering. We believe that athletics is an important component of a well-rounded experience, but it is not the sole focus our program, especially at the younger ages. We want our campers to gain exposure to a wide range of activities so there are many avenues through which a boy can find his niche at Camp Takajo.
