1-Week Camp

We believe 2-Week Camp is the optimal camp experience. That said, 1-Week Camp is a nice¬†stepping stone for first-timers who¬†aren’t quite ready for¬†a two-week session. Campers have just enough¬†time to make new friends, explore new interests, develop confidence, and experience Takodah’s rich traditions.

At the end of 1-Week Camp, your child will undoubtedly beg you for the full Boys Camp or Girls Camp program next year.

Staff and Safety

You won’t find more caring, mature, and responsible¬†staff anywhere else.¬†We recruit wonderful college students from around the world based on their character and proven ability to work with youth. Most of our staff are former campers¬†who know firsthand how to help¬†kids feel right at home, make friends, and have fun.

Because safety is our highest priority, all of our staff members pass rigorous applications, interviews, reference checks, and criminal background checks. They also attend a minimum of one week of training before campers arrive, in addition to holding specialized certifications, such as First Aid, CPR, lifeguard, and ropes course.

State-licensed nurses provide 24/7 care to keep campers safe and feeling great.
