Tapawingo is a Christian girls camp located on an island in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York. It serves girls ages 9-17 and is unique because of its beauty and biblical standards of excellence. Campers and staff alike are encouraged and inspired to find meaning and fulfillment in a hurting world.
Tapawingo has been called, "a haven of rest and refreshment" by our campers. It is a place where girls are free to be girls without the pressures and expectations of society. A place where young women have the chance to discover God’s unconditional love for them through Jesus Christ, grow in a deeper understanding of God’s Word and see His best for their lives!
Our purpose is to clearly and lovingly glorify Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior through personal example, meaningful activity, Biblical direction, and Christ-centered relationships in a safe and friendly environment that promotes healthy growth and development in all areas of a young woman's life.
Tapawingo seeks to provide a safe place for young women to discover who God is and His best for their lives. It's in this setting of unconditional love, structured challenge, healthy living, and uplifting role models that we hope to help girls discover the truth about the Lord, His love for them and to give them a vision for their future walk with Him.
This job stretches you, pushes you, grows you, challenges you, and creates a leader out of you. My faith has grown substantially every year I spend on the island. The community is unlike anything I've experienced. I have never felt so supported, believed in, and loved as I do when I work for Tapawingo. I wish every girl could experience this job. It's seriously life-changing. God's good like that.

Every time I come here I feel drawn closer to the Lord. I am currently going through a tough situation at home and my time here just provided rest, peace, and I was able to focus on what matters the most in my life, which is my relationship with God.

[My daughters] have loved camp every year, at every age. I'm so grateful for Tapawingo and how it speaks into their hearts. Praise God. He is faithful and works mightily at camp. Thank you for continuing the good work at camp and for being a light.
