Yesterday’s Values for Today’s Boys

Since 1947, our focus has remained constant – to provide a full-season summer camp experience that helps each boy develop the many facets of his unlimited potential. Our fundamental emphasis — brought home through sports and a wide range of activities and special events — is to instill strong moral and ethical standards that build character. Time-tested values such as integrity, honesty, compassion, and respect are the foundation of the Camp Takajo experience.

The most important aspects of being a Takajo counselor are the relationships you develop with your campers and the example you model through your own behavior.  Staff members are hired based on character, stability, interest in working with children, warmth, personality, and ability in a specialty.

There is no greater trust than that placed in us by parents, and no greater expectation than theirs for our complete dedication and attention to their sons.

Join Our Team


Our alumni are an integral part of the Camp Takajo experience.  The deep-rooted relationships that start in Bunk Chinkatink and Chuckatuck are evident in the lifelong friendships that carry forward through college, family life and career.

We have created an alumni website that not only allows former campers to stay connected with friends from camp, but provides opportunities to reach out to other Takajo alums when beginning the search for college, applying for internships, or seeking professional advice.
