Browse frequently asked questions about Day Camp sign-up.
2016 Day Camp Registration will begin on March 1st!
How much does Day Camp cost?
2016 Day Camp rates are as follows:
- Traditional Day Camp is $120 per child per week
- Equestrian Day Camp is $160 per child per week
- Bus Transportation is an additional $30 per child per week
When is the registration fee due?
$25 of the fee is due with registration. This is your nonrefundable registration deposit. You may send the rest of the fee when you register. If you don’t, it is due 30 days before the start of your child’s camp session.
Can I get a refund if I cancel?
If you cancel 14 or more days before your child’s camp session begins, we will refund all but your $25 registration deposit. Unfortunately, we can’t refund fees if a session is canceled less than 14 days before the session begins.
Does the fee cover the horseback ride and swim lessons?
The fee includes all program costs, including swim lessons and the horseback ride.
Does the fee cover meals?
Please bring your lunch in a brown or white paper bag with your child’s first and last name clearly written on the front. We will refrigerate the lunch bag when your child arrives at camp. Large cooler type lunch boxes are heavier and use a lot of space in our limited cooler space.
Do you offer financial assistance?
Camp Tecumseh is a charitable organization. Some fee assistance may be available for families that cannot afford the full fee. To request fee assistance, complete and return the Day Camp Campership Application along with your registration form:
How do I register for Day Camp?
What is the Day Camp registration deadline?
As long as space is available, we accept registration up until the first day of the Day Camp session.
Can my camper be with his/her friend?
Campers are placed into a trail group with two staff and ten campers their own age. When registering, campers can request to be with one other trail mate. This trail mate must be within 1 year of camper and trail mate requests must be mutual. Day Camp is a place to meet new friends and therefore we try not to group several friends together as this detracts from the camp experience for all members of the trail group. Due to certain circumstances, Camp Tecumseh may not be able to accommodate all requests.
What happens if my camper gets sick or hurt at camp?
We have a summer-long nurse as well as a dedicated day camp nurse on camp property at all times during the day camp day. We also have several EMTs on our full-time staff. If a camper gets hurt beyond a bandage, tylenol or bottle of water we will contact the parents or emergency contact person to inform you of the situation.
