We are sorry to say that due to the ongoing concerns with Covid-19 we will not be holding camp again this year. We know that the kids are as disappointed as we are, but we feel the risk outweighs the benefits. We are hoping we will all be back to regularly scheduled programs by 2022. Stay Well!

Camp Takoda is dedicated to providing a valuable experience for children on the autism spectrum (ages 6-21) in a natural outdoor setting on Lake Bloomington. Children have the opportunity to engage in typical camp activities including: canoeing, swimming, horseback riding, games, and much more in a safe and supportive atmosphere. At Camp Takoda we have a high counselor-to-camper ratio to ensure that all campers are safe and positively encouraged to participate in each activity offered.

Our goal is to always provide a comfortable and motivating environment that will help each camper develop their individual abilities with an emphasis on building self-confidence, social skills, and independence – all in a fun setting!
