Can I get a refund if I cancel?


The per week reservation fee is a registration charge and is neither refundable nor transferable to another child under any circumstances. If you cancel more than 30 days before your camp session starts all other fees will be refunded in full. Due to the difficulty of filling cancelled spots just prior to or during the camping season, cancellations for any session or program for any reason within 30 days of camp dates will receive no fee refund. Final payment is due by April 1st. All cancellations prior to the camp date must be sent in writing to the camp office. You can email your cancellation to our registrar at registrar@camptecumseh.org. Confirmation of the receipt of cancellation notice will be sent to you by return mail or email. If you do not receive a confirmation of cancellation, camp has not received your cancellation notice and no refund will be given.


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 apply for assistance, send us a campership (like a scholarship, but for camp!) application along with your registration form.


Call 765-564-2898 or email campership@camptecumseh.org for more information.


How do I register for camp?


You can register online or by mail. Go to the Register for Summer Camp page to get started.


Can my camper be in the same cabin as his/her friend?



Camp strives to meet requests, however we reserve the right to refuse requests. If two campers are within one year of each other’s age they can be placed in the same cabin, if mutually requested. To ensure that campers will also have the opportunity to meet new friends, we allow only one “Cabinmate Request” per camper. To ensure the best experience for all campers in the cabin group, we do our best to limit large groups of campers who already know each other from being placed together. Therefore, both campers must have the other camper listed as their “Cabinmate Request” on their registration form to ensure the pairing is made. Please also make sure the campers are coming the same week. Although we try to honor all mutually requests, we reserve the right to refuse cabinmate requests.


We cannot honor requests in cases where more than two campers have linked their names together. In cases where several campers have linked their names together each choosing a different cabinmate, we will place campers as it feels is in the best interest of all concerned.


You can help us out by coordinating your cabinmate request with the other family. If you have a special situation which you feel should be considered differently, please call at least one month in advance of camp. Please remember that even if two persons are not in the same cabin, there are many opportunities to spend time together in camp. If you are requesting that your child not be placed with a certain child it is your responsibility to inform the other family prior to arrival at camp.
