As you well know, we have been battling some severe weather as well as constant rain over the past several days. The water table is much higher than usual and because of this we are starting to have some occasional problems with our communication systems.
If you get a busy signal or can’t get to one of Camp Tecumseh’s online systems today please just keep trying! We’re doing our best to keep everything running for you, but we expect that we will have various outages that are out of our control.
Luckily only certain outlying parts of Camp Tecumseh’s land are affected when we have flooding. The main part of camp is on very high ground, so we also want you to know that we’re safe and camp is safe.

The world’s youngest spotter was spotted spotting right here at Camp Tecumseh! Without prompting, she ran over to spot her older sister on the Optimist Challenge Traverse Wall!

I bet this helps get you motivated to get your poles out! The Richard G. Marsh Lake has had great fishing every since it was constructed.

Many kids catch their first fish right here at Camp!

Monty Maggart and Paul Nicholson from Greentown, Indiana have been bringing their Eastern Elementary students to Camp Tecumseh YMCA for 26 years!
26-27 years and counting(??) I have enjoyed each one! It has been wonderful to see the Camp grow and the students and teacher/staff with it! I still have former students who say “Do you remember when we did this at Camp?” Or, “I had fun with canoeing or archery.” Valedictorians and student speakers at graduation have even mentioned fond memories they had from seven years earlier. You do make an impact! Monty Maggart
My 26th year just completed at Camp T. has been as special as the first one! Each year has allowed new avenues of learning for our students as they have found it to be all and more than we tell them before hand. God Bless Camp T. and its legacy to our children. Paul Nicholson

A special thanks to all those teachers, parents, and communities that pull together to make this happen for their students.

Many Summer Resident campers are introduced to Camp Tecumseh YMCA through their school’s Outdoor Education field trip. Camp serves approximately 60 schools in the fall, 10 schools during the winter, and another 60 schools in the spring. Schools typically show up in the morning and spend one or two nights before heading home in time for the afternoon bus routes. The trails have been designed to help teach and meet curriculum guidelines for Indiana state standards.
