About Camp Tecumseh

Building character and confidence since 1924.


Every year, more than 35,000 people visit Camp Tecumseh for summer camp, field trips, meetings, and events. We’ve grown a lot since we were established along the Tippecanoe River over 90 years ago – yet we still adhere to the same core values we’ve had since the beginning.


Our campers say Camp Tecumseh is the best place in the world. Why? It’s not just about fun and games. It’s about building character, confidence, and connections that last a lifetime.

Our days are guided by the Camp Tecumseh motto, “I am third”

We’re surrounded by nature, yet easily accessible from Interstate 65

We’ve come a long way since Camp Tecumseh was founded nearly a century ago

We’re committed to meeting standards of excellence for health and safety

Camp Tecumseh employs people who have strong character and leadership abilities
