Summer Camp for Boys
Camp Takajo was founded in 1947 by Morton J. Goldman. Throughout its history, Takajo has been known for its diverse and carefully designed programs, plus exceptional facilities that combine to offer youngsters a breadth of experience that is unique in camping. Exposure to a wide range of activities enables each boy to find his niche in the camp setting. An underlying philosophy which emphasizes individual growth helps every child thrive in Takajo’s family-oriented environment.

We are committed to full-season camping. However, we do offer a limited number of placements for families who share our values, but who may be more comfortable with four weeks for your son’s first overnight camp experience. Campers have the option to remain for the balance of the season.
If you would like to explore this option, click here to contact us. Jeff will call you to discuss whether Takajo is the right fit for your son and for your family.
An important goal at Takajo certainly is to create a fun-filled, positive atmosphere in which youngsters can develop the many facets of their unlimited potential. The fundamental emphasis, brought home through sports, games, and special events, is on time-tested moral and ethical standards. Integrity, a sense of fair play, respect for one’s self and others, appreciation of nature. If we help children learn to live with others, help them develop self-esteem, independence, and a deepening sense of responsibility, and do so in a way that leads to lasting friendships— then we have accomplished a great deal. This is our goal at Camp Takajo.
