Girls Camp

Camp is the Last Safe Place to Be a Kid

Girls are¬†consumed by media‚ÄĒinternet, advertisements, TV, movies and video games. They all tell girls¬†the same thing: their¬†worth is determined by how they¬†look.¬†When stacking up seems impossible, girls¬†start feeling anxious and insecure.

That’s why the Girls Camp experience has never been so important. 

We break down stereotypes, forget about appearances, and free girls to be themselves. Without the social pressures of being around boys, your daughter can explore who she really is and what she can achieve. Focused on sisterhood instead of the need to impress others, your daughter can develop deeper and stronger bonds. Guided by strong female role models, your daughter can become a leader in her own right, while growing more independent, confident and assertive.

We live in a co-ed world, but a couple weeks at Takodah is exactly what your daughter needs.

Staff and Safety

Girl Staff

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.
