Overnight Camp 2021

An overnight camp experience unlike any other

We are working hard to prepare and intend to run camp this summer. We are very excited about the opportunity to gather again in person. There will be changes, but our focus is on providing a safe and impactful experience for all of our campers.

We are working daily to finalize details. We recognize that this is a very fluid situation, so we will continue to communicate and keep you updated on changes leading up to camp this summer.

Your Bubble at Camp

A unique opportunity to get to know your neighboring cabin

Meeting new friends, getting to know your cabin mates, and socialization in general are huge parts of what makes the camp experience so special. This year, campers will have the unique opportunity to really get to know those in their bubble: their cabin and neighboring cabin.

In addition, we are working on safe ways for bubbles to interact with other bubbles by utilizing masks and physical distancing.

No Weekend Stayovers

Preserving bubbles

To preserve those bubbles mentioned above, many activities and logistics of previous years will be altered this coming summer. In previous summers, some campers who have registered for back-to-back weeks would stay at camp over the weekend, between sessions. This summer, we will not be offering that option.

Bubbles

In a typical stayover weekend, campers from a variety of cabins would join together to stay in a small number of cabins as a group. This would inherently disrupt our efforts at preserving designated bubbles.

Those registered for multiple weeks

If you are registered for multiple weeks, we are going to ask that you pick your camper up on Saturday and check them back in on Sunday. Have questions? Contact Camp at 765-564-2898.

CILTs will stayover

CILTs will be required to stay the weekend, and we will not be allowing them to leave or get picked up at any point during the session. They will stay at camp for the full two weeks to protect their bubble and limit exposure.

Limits on Large Gatherings

Keeping Camp Traditions, with Small Changes

Chapel, opening campfire, and closing campfire will be limited or altered in some ways. These are very important aspects of the Camp Tecumseh experience, and we are working on ways to provide them in a safe and healthy way. More detailed information to come.

Clinics

Clinics are a major part of our program and we want campers to have the options to learn new skills and try new activities in a safe way. This year, clinics will be done as cabin activities. Because of the structure of clinics, and how much mixing of campers occurs during these times, we cannot run clinics as usual and still protect the bubbles.

Dining

We are creating systems to limit large gatherings in the dining hall, and to serve meals in shifts. More information to come.

 

 

More Information to Come
