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 two 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 $50,000 total, which has helped to provide camp scholarships for children who may not have otherwise been given the opportunity. We plan to have our third annual STRIDES4SCOPE in Summer 2018. In addition, our head counselors and directors are hosting a Kicks4Camp, a friendly kickball tournament for all 13s – Counselors. The tournament will take place on Sunday, April 29 at Gardella Park in White Plains, NY from 1-4pm. To register, please click here: https://support.scopeusa.org/taconic-strides
