Michael and Melissa

Camp Tockwogh changes lives! My children, Michael and Melissa, beg me every summer to let them go back to Camp Tockwogh because they have “a blast” and make nice friends. Raising my children as a single mother has been difficult. We live in a neighborhood where crime is high and, unfortunately, playing outside can be risky. Camp Tockwogh provides a safe environment for Michael and Melissa and it brings me peace of mind because I know they are being cared for and are having fun with friends. Tockwogh is a place that makes them feel welcomed and right at home. Additionally, the Tockwogh staff are the greatest. They never make me feel bad because I need assistance through the scholarship program and they are always there to help get my children to camp. Thank you for all you do!
