Woodworking allows campers the opportunity to become skilled working with their hands. We provide safety instruction about how to use various power tools when woodworking. Counselors will supervise the woodworking shop which contains a full complement of power tools and hand tools that are used by campers of all ages, for various construction projects.
Above all else, our goal is to help boys grow into young men of strong moral character. We believe that boys need structure. Our programs are designed to be developmentally age appropriate. As boys get older, their program allows them increased choices so they can pursue their maturing interests and specialize in specific areas. We believe in a well-rounded, diverse program that includes sports, waterfront activities, hobbies, skills, and pioneering. We believe that athletics is an important component of a well-rounded experience, but it is not the sole focus our program, especially at the younger ages. We want our campers to gain exposure to a wide range of activities so there are many avenues through which a boy can find his niche at Camp Takajo.
Camp Takajo is situated in southern Maine, in the town of Naples, on Long Lake. Takajo is 35 miles from the Maine coastline with its many fine towns and beaches and the same distance from the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The surrounding countryside is characterized by beautiful lakes and evergreen forests.
