Tapawingo campers enjoy lunchtime in the Dining Hall

As our former director Jane always said, “We are a family, so we eat together.” Tapawingo’s size is intentional for many reasons, but particularly because it allows every camper to comfortably sit in the Dining Hall together for meals. We provide delicious family-style meals and our campers rotate tables every few days to allow them to get to know everyone in the Tapawingo community. In the Tap Dining Hall, there are table games, trivia and a song for everything!

  • We provide balanced meals with alternative options whether that be for preference or for allergies or health decisions.
  • In addition to the meal at breakfast there is yogurt, cereal and mounds of fresh berries. At lunch and dinner there is an extensive salad bar.
  • We offer meals that are vegetarian, vegan, dairy free and gluten free. We are a nut free facility.
“I’ve learned things I never would’ve learned anywhere else and was able to do things I never would’ve done if it weren’t for camp. It’s shaped me into who I am. It’s so cool to have a place that you can say has done that for you. Tapawingo is my happy place. ”

Tapawingo has been dedicated to preserving the environment since 1919. We are focused on reducing our carbon footprint and maintaining the 200 acres in our care for generations to come. Tap girls in 2119 will enjoy the same clean water of Keyes Pond as well as miles of trails and campsites.

Your daughter's bunk and camp experience is her home away from home for the summer. Our bunks are intentionally basic but cozy: single beds for each camper and counselor, ample shelf and cubby space, screen windows and walls abound to create an outdoor sensation yet protected space, overhead lights, a porch, two restrooms and a single outlet. Our bunks of 8 campers and 2 counselors create a nurturing environment.
