Packing Tips and Lists

Know what to bring – and what not to bring.


See below for tips on what to bring to Camp Tecumseh.


Also, please be aware of what NOT to bring to camp. In particular, note that campers should not bring electronic devices like MP3 players, laptops, tablets, e-readers, and cell phones. If we find these items, we lock them up until the end of camp. We realize it can be tough to pry these devices out of kids’ hands, but taking a break from them is an important part of the camp experience!


In addition, we do not allow campers to bring jewelry, fireworks, guns, ammunition, skateboards, bicycles, in-line skates, or pets. Possession of drugs, drug paraphernalia, tobacco, or alcohol products is grounds for immediate dismissal from camp.
