From time to time this year we are trying something new. If you are a past camper, you might remember when we had a “Camp Newspaper.” In this classic clinic campers would report on what was going on at camp and then print out a newspaper for all the campers at the end of the week. We’re going to put a modern twist on it and have campers write for the the Tecumseh News web site! Hope you enjoy it and learn a little more about camp! – dcl
Certain Clinics Gain More Campers’ Attention
by Kristina Witczak and Maggie Wilson
Clinics make Camp Tecumseh unique. Friendship bracelets, Skywalkers, and Disc golf are just a few of the many clinics you can choose from. Other popular clinics include beads, Ultimate Frisbee, Cricket, and Canoeing/kayaking.
Campers are given the option to choose what clinics they would like to take each week. For some campers, they learn new skills, and for others, they brush up on old talents.
“I like that some clinics, such as Skywalkers, push you to overcome challenges,” Michelle Leppol, a resident counselor, said.
Some campers may like to challenge themselves, while others may like to relax during clinics like beads or friendship bracelets.
“I like to do anything creative with my hands,” Brittney, the beads clinic instructor, said.
Other campers enjoy getting wet and choose water clinics.
“I like skin diving because its fun and you get to spend time in the pool,” Jason Sarver, a camper in Chippewa cabin, said.
Campers look forward to the next summer when they can learn new skills and polish the ones they have learned in previous years. Overall, campers say clinics are one of Camp Tecumseh’s selling points. At this rate, it looks like the sports and friendship bracelet-type activities are the most popular for campers.
