Camp Tanuga has been cultivating lifelong friendships since 1952. Tanuga allows campers to create their own activity schedule in an environment that promotes self reliance, life skills and a comfort level to be themselves. A nurturing staff is present throughout their journey to facilitate a safe, nurturing and memorable experience. We call this the "Tanuga Magic".
Where Everybody Knows Your Name...
"Giving youngsters the chance to explore the great outdoors, and a little about themselves is the legacy that Camp Tanuga is proud to foster." -Bernie "The Bear" Friedman, Founder 1925-1988

#TanugaMagic || Happy place and home away from home
We hand delivered our son at Camp for the very first overnight, week long experience. We pulled in to be greeted by camp staff, led to the parking lot to meet the rest of the staff and then immediately greeted by our sons camp counselors. They helped our son feel at home and as I looked up to make eye contact with my son, I witnessed first hand his comfort as he was laughing, chatting and walking off to get settled in...never looking back. Now that's #TanugaMagic
First time at Tanuga. Definitely won't be my last. Absolutely loved every moment there
Just the best
Camp Tanuga is a great camp. My three daughters all enjoy their time at camp every summer
