Mission

Our goal is to help your group better meet its mission

Between the personal growth experienced by each of your members and to the collective growth that results from an intentional shared experience, we hope that your trip to Camp Tecumseh will inspire and prepare your group to better achieve your mission back in your own community.

  • A world-class staff to serve you

    Our staff is here to help you at every step of the process. From planning and organizing your trip, to staffing and leading program areas, to trouble-shooting issues whenever they arise, our staff is a visible and helpful presence during your trip. Personable, generous, and fun-loving, we’re here to serve you.

  • We'll handle the logistics

    We’ve made planning the logistics of your trip as easy as we can. With hearty meals prepared by our expert kitchen staff and meal times led by a Tecumseh staff member, first-class winterized cabins with attached restrooms, and numerous activities that are led and supervised by Tecumseh staff, we take many of the headaches involved with trip planning off of your plate.

  • An environment designed for growth

    With 660 acres along the banks of the Tippecanoe River, Camp Tecumseh’s natural setting provides the perfect environment to disconnect from the world and reconnect with your group. More than just the natural setting, Camp’s friendly and welcoming staff and intentionally designed programs work together to foster an atmosphere of joy.

Activities

Programs designed to help your group grow

With a flexible schedule and activities for all ages, you can do what you love at your own pace. From horseback riding through the pine forest, to climbing a rock wall, our program areas provide plenty of opportunities for unique, shared experiences designed specifically to bring your group together.

Staffed Program Areas

At our staffed program areas, take advantage of the best programming Tecumseh has to offer with the assurance that you’ll be safe and cared for in the hands of Tecumseh staff. Climbing a rock wall, riding a horse through the pine forest, and flying down the black hole slide are only a few of the options available to you.

Activities vary by weekend but generally include:

Self-Directed Activities

In addition to our staffed program areas, Camp Tecumseh features numerous self-directed activities. Hike through the oak forest or the pine forest. Start a gaga tournament. Come play at the Three House Tree-House and take your picture by the giant chair. Play a round of disc golf. Make survival bracelets in the Nature Center. No matter what you’re into, we have something for you.

Other Activities

Our program areas are only the beginning. If you and your group have requests for specific programs or activities, our talented staff can work with you to bring your ideas to life. From dance parties in Kampen Lodge with professional DJs, to giant battles of tug-of-war in the Upper Pioneer field, to morning Yoga on the back deck of the River Lodge, the only limit is your imagination.

Campfire

Evening Campfire Programs

On Saturday nights, enjoy a family-friendly, staff-led campfire program full of silly songs and hilarious skits as the sun sets.
