100th Anniversary

1916 was a big year. Woodrow Wilson was president. The first woman was elected to serve in the US Congress. The US National Park Service was created. The cost of a stamp was $0.02. Boston won the World Series. Albert Einstein completed his theory of relativity (including gravity). 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was released. And…

It was the start of YMCA Camp Takodah! Nearly 100 years later, we are continuing to help children discover who they are and what they can achieve.

We are seeking volunteers who are interested in helping to plan a celebration event. If you’re interested, please contact Ryan at or 603-352-0447.

As we near our 100th Anniversary Celebration in 2016, it is important that we know how to connect with our alumni. We do not want anyone to miss out. Simply visit our website and enter your email address in the “Connect with Takodah” form on the homepage. Please add your Takodah friends and family too.

Alumni Association

You’re invited to join Camp Takodah’s Alumni Association! The Takodah Alumni Association is an affiliation of former Takodians devoted to supporting YMCA Camp Takodah’s growth and progress, preserving our history, and of course making opportunities for alumni to stay in touch – both with camp and one another. Membership is free and open to anyone who is a former (not current) Takodah camper or staff member. Members are sent copies of Takodah Whisper, the Camp Takodah Alumni News, twice each year, and have access to our online Facebook community, which allows members to find old friends and keep them posted with news about their lives and families. You’ll also have an opportunity each spring to impact Takodah’s future by attending Opportunities Day (summer camp prep work day) and giving to our annual Alumni Campaign! Sign-up today!
