Last weekend the rainy weather stopped the girl scout troop from having the campfire program that they really looked forward to. So staffers Jordan Seeger and Meghan Codd gave them their very own ‘campfire’ program right inside their cabin!!!
REPEAT AFTER ME!
The girls loved it. What a great example of Tecumseh staff going ‘above and beyond’ to see the campers have a memorably wonderful experience!
"I said a Boom Chicka Boom!"
Hooray for Jordan and Meghan! Exceptional Job!

We have now completed Summer Camp 2011. Only the wonderful glow still remains (plus some lost and found). What an amazing summer it was. Our staff sang, cheered, laughed, and cried at the Celebration Banquet last Saturday night. We sang ‘Tecumseh’ for the final time of the summer and already started talking about next summer!! Thanks to everyone who helped make this ‘the best summer ever!’
Mud Hike, Mud Hike!
Big Game Fun!

The stayover program is so much fun for campers staying two weeks. Movie time, ice cream, pool fun and lots of lake time!

It is very special when campers or staff from years ago return to Camp Tecumseh. They bring with them wonderful memories of camp ‘in their youth’. They love the improvements but appreciate that the traditions and essence of Camp T is unchanged.
This week Lori Abbott and her dad, Doc Abbott visited camp while Lori was back for a hometown visit to Monticello from Florida. Lori and her siblings, Mike and Jane, were campers for years in the 1970s. Now Lori has three grandchildren enjoying Tecumseh Day Camp. If you are an alum~~come for a visit!

- Quiet game in the shade before a swim.
Yes, it IS hot here at Camp Tecumseh, but we have two HUGE advantages: lots of shade trees and very little asphalt. Not to mention, a couple of fantastic swimming pools and a really nice lake!
- Splash attack on starboard side!
Pool Clinics are REALLY cool!
The mantra here is “Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!” We encourage everyone to drink water during every activity change and during the activities themselves. To help facilitate this, we have put igloo coolers of water at various places around camp to make getting water even more convenient.
Stopping for some H2O
We have a rest period for about 1.25 hours after lunch every day. Campers are to be on their bunks, reading, sleeping, etc. This is the hottest part of the day and a good time to not be out doing activities.
Arts and Crafts in the CAC
Our dining rooms, craft centers, and health center are each air conditioned as well. If a youngster is not feeling well, they are taken to the health center where they can cool down and have the nurses check them out. Back in 1983 we had twenty days over 100 degrees! Camp and the campers continue in hot weather, but we take care to slow the intensity of the schedule to keep everybody safe and make sure they’re feeling well so they can do what they came here to do – have fun!
All Smiles at the Lake!
