Cheshire County YMCA’s Camp Takodah is located on 500 acres of pristine forest and open fields on the shores of Cass Pond in southwestern New Hampshire. Takodah has over 80 years of experience and tradition providing high quality camp programs driven by the needs of youth. Our Adventure trips travel throughout New England rock climbing, rafting, back packing, canoeing, and kayaking.
Our Adventure Programs are designed for enthusiasts, not experts.
We provide a fun, hands-on learning environment that welcomes campers with varied abilities and experiences. With the motivation to try new things and be a part of a team, any camper can succeed in our programs.
The Camp Takodah Adventure Program seeks to develop the whole person in spirit, mind and body. Our diverse programs encompass “authentic” adventure experiences, environmental awareness, teamwork and personal responsibility. Our adventure trips create opportunities for campers to increase their self-esteem, improve communication skills, recognize compassion for others, discover personal values, and build group cooperation.
