Scout Troops

Scouting Doesn’t Get Better Than This.

 

At Camp Tecumseh we’re committed to partnering with your troop to create lasting experiences that build courage, confidence, and character, and encourage your scouts to make the world a better place.

 

Let Us Handle the Logistics

 

Tecumseh makes scouting easy. With hearty meals prepared by our expert kitchen staff, first-class winterized cabins with attached restrooms, personable and fun-loving staff members who lead activities, and hundreds of natural acreage waiting to be explored, we take away the headaches of planning a scouting trip so you can focus on what matters most: your scouts.

Girl Scout Month Badgework

 

March is made for Girl Scouts at Camp Tecumseh. During available retreats weekend, we offer special programs to earn girl scout badges. While badgework is only available in March, we invite scout troops to attend on any available weekend from January-May and Mid-August-December.

 

 

 

Letterboxer

Letterboxing is an amazing adventure game played by people all over the world. Use your curiosity and join in. To play, you follow clues to find a hidden box with special items inside. In North America, there are thousands of letterboxes. Maybe there’s one hidden near you right now

Senses

Our five senses are our connection to everything around us. they work together to let us see, hear, smell, taste, and touch the world around us. Use all of the senses to learn more about our environment.

Animal Habitats

Imagine meeting a monkey or kicking up dust with a kangaroo. These animals live in the wild, so we don’t get to spend time with them in their natural homes — their habitats. But that doesn’t mean we can’t find out more about where they live, how they play, and how we can help them!

Detective

Books and movies are full of amazing detectives solving mysteries and bringing criminals to justice. their jobs are important, exciting, and take serious skills. Grab your magnifying glass and dive into the science of detecting!

Night Owl

Grow your imagination and expand you know (or thought you knew!) by stepping out into the night. turn out the lights and prepare to discover the beauty and mystery of the world after the sun goes down.

Archery

Picture this: You nock (or place) an arrow onto a bow, hook your fingers around the string, draw it back, eye your target, and release! Bull’s-eye! Archery is an exciting sport that takes strength, focus, good form, and practice. Get ready to challenge yourself as you build your archery skills and learn how to shoot on a range.
