While structure and routine are key ingredients to the Camp Takajo program, so is spontaneity and laughter. Today, we hosted Takajo’s annual Carnival. It is the perfect time of the season to break from our league play, inter-camp games, and out-of-camp trips to come together as a camp for pure enjoyment.
We invited the campers’ sisters and cousins from nearby camps, so that everyone could enjoy this special day together. The carnival had a costume parade, which is always led by our Okeechobees, our oldest campers. The Okees take great pride in creating original costumes that amaze and impress the crowd.
There were inflatable games, karaoke, and the crowd favorite, the dunking booth. There is nothing more popular at the carnival than cotton candy and snow cones, especially on a hot, humid day. After a few hours of play, we cooled off in the dining room for a great barbecue lunch followed by some free-swim time and banana boat rides– the perfect way to end this spectacular day.

With visiting day just two days away, our boys search for clean Takajo uniforms and begin the countdown until they see the familiar smile of the ones they love the most.
