Connect with Camp Tecumseh

Inspiring you, encouraging you, and building you up all year long

Taking the lessons you learned here and applying them back home in your own community is part of the bargain. That’s how we build a better world.  But that doesn’t mean you can’t stay connected to us when you’re back at home. Camp Tecumseh is always here to inspire you, encourage you, and build you up. From updates on what your Camp friends are doing,  to weekly digital devotions, to volunteer opportunities, to our annual Running with Raccoons 5K, we want to inspire you to be your best self, and encourage you to live third all year long.

 

The Tecumseh Tales

Stay up to date with our monthly newsletter

Once a month we send out the Tecumseh Tales, our digital newsletter that keeps you up to date with new developments at Camp, opportunities to get involved, and stories from the Camp family who are living third.

Print Edition

Twice a year we compile the best stories from the past six months and send out a print edition of the Tecumseh Tales. Printed on FSC certified paper, it pairs perfectly with a cup of coffee and a comfy chair.

A network of world-changers

Digital Devotions

Start your week on the right foot with a digital devotion

Every Monday we send out a digital devotion put together by one of our summer staff members. Inspiring and uplifting, our digital devotions are the perfect reminder to live third all year long.

Running with Raccoons 5K

A fun-loving 5K that supports camperships.

Make friends, stay fit, and support a good cause in Camp Tecumseh’s third annual Running with Raccoons 5k run/walk. With over 300 people registered in 2016, and over 450 people registered in 2017, it’s one of the region’s most popular races. Whether you’re a serious runner, or just want to come back to Camp, we hope you’ll join us for a festive afternoon as we raise money to benefit Camp Tecumseh’s campership fund.  Packet Pickup begins at 1:30pm and the race starts at 3:00pm. Run, walk, skip, jump, or roll the chip-timed 5k course snaking through Camp Tecumseh. Keep your eyes peeled for a course map coming soon. All-terrain strollers are welcome. Please leave pets at home. A huge part of the Tecumseh culture is building relationships and sharing love with our family, friends, and neighbors. We encourage you to invite someone to join you for the 5K!

Partner Service Day

Get back to Camp while giving back to Camp

Giving back is an important part of the Tecumseh mission and twice a year we excitedly welcome back members of the Tecumseh family to volunteer here at Camp. Partner Service Day offers volunteers an opportunity to help us make improvements around camp that will benefit the tens of thousands of campers we serve every year.

Upcoming service day

The next Partner Service Day will be held in May 2018. If you or your organization would like to attend, contact Stacey Seeger.

World Service Fund

Apply for funds raised at Camp to make a difference in the world

Every summer campers have the option of donating up to $3 from their trading post account to the world service fund. These funds are then directed to individuals and organizations that do important work that reflect Tecumseh values. If you are a member, or former member of the Tecumseh staff, and are pursuing impactful work, we’d love to hear from you.
