Camp Taconic, Lake Ashmere Massachusetts - Taconic Cares

Camp Taconic has a long standing tradition of being involved with many philanthropic organizations. We teach our campers about the importance of giving back and caring for others, as well as help them to evolve into selfless, loyal and passionate people. Over the years Taconic has participated and donated toward many charitable causes including SCOPE (Summer Camp Opportunities Promote Education), Habitat for Humanity, Dream Boxes, The Hinsdale Food Pantry and Camp-To-Belong.

For the past three summers, the entire Taconic community has participated in STRIDES4SCOPE. Campers and counselors walked approximately 2 miles around camp to raise money for SCOPE. We’ve raised over $75,000 total, which has helped to provide camp scholarships for children who may not have otherwise been given the opportunity. We plan to have our fourth annual STRIDES4SCOPE in Summer 2019.  To donate, please click here:

Taconic is proud to support our family members in need. A Taconic alum lost his house in a fire recently and we are proud to support them through this site.
