The swim area at Camp Takajo is fantastic! Situated on Long Lake the swim area is the size of 3 Olympic swim pools. There is a sandy beach, 8-lane competitive swim pool mirrored by an open play area and deep-water areas. The deep-water areas have 3 rafts with a slide, low diving board and a high dive platform. There are water polo and water basketball facilities, too! Our American Red Cross Water Safety Instructors teach a swimming program which is a sequential, developmental instructional program with specific goals for beginners to advanced swimmers. We have swim teams in every age group and host the largest inter-camp Swim Invitational in Maine. We also have a Lake Swim program for our older campers who qualify to swim the 1.5 miles across beautiful Long Lake. And, of course, we have plenty of opportunities for boys to swim just for fun!
