Give a gift that changes lives
Every day Camp Tecumseh helps build the kind of leaders the world needs. However, we can only do it with your help. When you give, you help build selfless leaders who care more about others than themselves. You inspire go-getters who aren’t afraid to take risks and get their hands dirty doing important work. You motivate principled citizens to stand up for what’s right no matter how tough it is. You show the next generation of leaders how to love one another, take responsibility for their actions, stand up for others, and grow in faith. When you give to Camp Tecumseh, you change lives.

”These camperships could not have come at a better time for my girls. Their mother’s health is failing and life at home is not as easy or as pleasant as a father would like. Camp Tecumseh allowed for an escape from the stress and responsibilities these girls now face at home. Thanks to you and your contributors from the bottom of my heart.”
