Rookie Weekend and Rookie Day Programs

Take a Virtual Tour!

Your son can be a Takajo camper for a weekend!

Our annual Rookie Weekend gives prospective campers a unique opportunity to participate in our camp program and feel the Camp Takajo spirit. Your son will sleep in a bunk with counselors and other rookie campers. He’ll get a taste of the activities and the experiences he’ll enjoy as a full-fledged camper. Most importantly, he’ll make new friends and get a sense of the independence and self-confidence that come from a quality summer camp experience.

We provide lunch and a tour of camp for parents on Friday afternoon. We’re happy to suggest some wonderful getaway opportunities for you if you choose to spend the weekend in the beautiful state of Maine while your son enjoys camp.

Rookie Weekend is designed for boys currently in 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th grades who are thinking of attending Camp Takajo the following summer. Space is limited and always fills quickly, so if you’re interested, please submit an inquiry form and we’ll contact you to discuss all of the details. There is no charge for the weekend.

Rookie Weekend


If Rookie Weekend doesn’t fit into your summer plans, we also offer a Rookie Day to accommodate families who cannot join us for Rookie Weekend and for those who may be visiting their daughters at nearby camps.

We are also happy to arrange a private tour of the camp at a date and time convenient for you. Please call us or use the inquiry form, and we will be in touch with you shortly.
