Proud Supporters of Camp Ta-Kum-Ta:
For almost three decades Camp Ta-Kum-Ta has provided a safe, loving place where children from Vermont and New York who have, or have had cancer can play, swim, share, and heal. In short, Camp T-K-T is where kids go to reclaim a childhood robbed by cancer.
At the very beginning Camp was just a great idea without a name. While in the Pediatric Oncology Unit at the hospital discussing the possibility of a camp where "kids with cancer" can just be "kids", one of the children still too young to attend exclaimed in frustration "but I want a camp to come ta!". The name was perfect, and eventually she did get her "Camp Ta-Kum-Ta". Today, she is one of the many survivors volunteering on staff!
Each year Camp Ta-Kum-Ta tries to squeeze in as many life experiences and memories as possible all year long. Along with traditional camp activities such as swimming, athletics, ropes course, and arts & crafts, Ta-Kum-Ta offers once-in-a-lifetime opportunities such as rock climbing expeditions, hot-air balloon rides, formal dances, and lake cruises. During the winter we have winter weekends, where kids go cross country skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating and much more.
Camp Ta-Kum-Ta's new home in South Hero, Vermont will enable our children and their families to grow in ways never thought possible. Our new home is beautiful and has the capacity to grow, but it will take a large commitment from the community to make this dream a reality for our special campers who attend Camp Ta-Kum-Ta.
