At Camp Tapawingo, we are a close-knit family of campers and staff members. We share in the joys of our collective experiences, celebrate our differences, and hold one another accountable to our philosophy and culture. Our campers learn to camp, paddle the lazy Saco River, and explore the rugged trails of Maine in preparation for more challenging hikes and white water rafting. Through our camp community, our campers build strong connections and deep relationships that will last a lifetime.
At Camp Tapawingo, we believe in the value of exploration and adventure. We provide our campers with the opportunity to discover the beauty of the Maine outdoors, from the lazy Saco River to the summit of Mount Katahdin. With trips to the Ogunquit region of the Maine coast and Montreal, our campers are exposed to a variety of experiences to help them grow and develop.
Our campers leave Camp Tapawingo with a sense of belonging and a wealth of memories. By fostering a camp community that encourages open communication, mutual respect, and accountability, we create an atmosphere that allows our campers to create deep relationships and lasting connections.

Programs at Camp Tapawingo in Harrison, ME
Sundays at Tap are always special, starting with the option to sleep in and donuts in your pajamas. Our high-energy, creative Special Programs counselors organize activities for the entire day. Whether you’re working in a team to collect gold in Gold Rush, seeking your favorite counselors in Counselor Hunt, slipping down the water slide at Carnival, going into local communities to volunteer, or competing in our annual Song Meet, there’s something for everyone!
Senior Campers are in charge of some of our campers' favorite Special Programs, Holiday and Banquet. These are top-secret, themed events where campers get to enjoy special meals, sweet treats and dance to their favorite songs!
Our supportive community of girls and women encourage all abilities to participate in both individual and team sports. Tap girls vary from beginners to competitive athletes.
Core team sports include: basketball, soccer, softball and volleyball. We also offer electives in field hockey and lacrosse. Team building and the joys of competition are stressed.
Individual sports include: archery, gymnastics and conditioning.
Laughter and joy are standards on Saturday night as each each age group puts on a short play. Designed as a confidence builder, Tap girls are given the chance to perform in a loving supportive environment.
We offer instruction in acting, dance, voice, costume and technical production. Our younger campers take one week of dance and one week of acting while our older campers select an elective.
