Since 1919, Tap has been making a difference in the lives of girls. Our staff, current families and alumnae agree that the experiences and relationships our campers enjoy during their summers at Tap are influential in their development into compassionate, courageous adults. 

“Tap friendships are amazing, 35 years since my first summer at camp and those friendships have endured, we have had so many adventures together... I’m forever thankful for my Tap friends.”

Our intimate camp community fosters connections and deep relationships. We cheer each other on, we hold one another accountable to our philosophy and culture, we tap into shared experiences and celebrate our differences. We are a FAMILY.

At Tap we are lucky enough to unplug, tune out the noise of the outside world and provide meaningful experiences and relationships for our campers. Our atmosphere of safety and inclusivity inspires Tap girls to find each other and themselves as they explore new adventures in a beautiful lakeside setting. 

Why Seven Weeks at Tap Makes a Difference

A Tap Girl for Life

Tap girls may move around the globe but they always have a home on Keyes Pond. Neither years nor distance can weaken this connection. Generations of Tapawingo campers are joined through songs, traditions, relationships, alumnae celebrations, shared experiences and their love for their summer home. 

“There’s something about the atmosphere of Tapawingo that makes it so special and unlike anything else. It’s the community, bringing together all of these people from so many different walks of life, from all over the world. ”
