Water Sports at Camp Takajo
Camp Takajo is situated on Long Lake, located in the picturesque Sebago Lake region of southern Maine. Along nearly a mile of shoreline, we have designated areas for swimming, water skiing and wakeboarding, sailing, and canoeing. Our waterfront director is a certified Red Cross instructor who trains our staff in an intensive preseason orientation in CPR, water safety and swim instruction. Our swimming program is based on the American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim Program.
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.
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.
Water Sports, including Wake Boarding, Wake Surfing, and Water Skiing, are some of the most exciting activities at Takajo. Your son will receive full instruction in the techniques of water sports and safety on the water. No boys camp is complete without water sports.
Campers will learn about sailing theory and safe operation of a sailboat, basic parts of the boat and sail, and skills such as reading winds, sail trim, boat balance and steering.
Campers will learn about safe operation of a canoe, about the gear and equipment, and about canoeing techniques. Campers can work toward developing the requisite skills to paddle on nearby rivers and lakes.
