The Y Camp Experience

Camping teaches self-reliance, leadership, and love of nature.




We’re proud to be part of the broad and diverse network of YMCA camps across the U.S.


Camp Tecumseh was founded by YMCA of Indiana in 1924. To this day, we remain closely aligned with the Y’s core values (caring, honesty, respect, responsibility, and faith) and its areas of focus:


  • Youth development – Nurturing the potential of every child and teen.
  • Healthy living – Improving the nation’s health and well-being.
  • Social responsibility – Giving back and providing support to our neighbors.
