Thanks again for taking care of Jax this summer. On the way down to Boston tonight I heard a lot of great stories on how the summer went down.

It is so great to hear how he is growing up, creating bonds, friendships and memories. All of this just reinforces how special a place Camp Takajo is and the lives of how many you have impacted.

Thanks for everything.

Water Sports at Camp Takajo

Camp Takajo is situated on the pure waters of Long Lake, with nearly a mile of peaceful waterfront. We have areas for swimming, waterskiing, sailing and canoeing. We’re also close to the Saco River, where we take local canoeing day trips. The Waterfront program is one of the most exciting parts of Camp Takajo.



Campers swim in a peaceful part of Long Lake. Boys can enjoy recreational swimming under the supervision of certified lifeguards. Boys learn about many different swimming techniques and safety in the water.
