Tecumseh SignGet ready to enjoy the awesome activities this camp has to offer: climbing, epic slides, horseback riding, marksmanship, waterfront fun and campfires, click here to see the previous post with a description of all activities.  Pack 24 has reserved a total of 59 spots for Friday, April 24 to Sunday, April 26.  Camp Tecumseh is in Brookston, Indiana which is north of Lafayette, and according to Google Maps, an easy two-hour drive from the Riverside area.

Some key points to keep in mind include:

  • Our accommodations will be four bunkhouse style cabins, which will each sleep 14-15 individuals.  Each will have indoor plumbing.  We will group everyone by family and try to keep the dens together as much as possible.
  • Each family will have the option to stay either two nights (Friday & Saturday) or just for Saturday.  Everyone has to check out by 1pm ET on Sunday.
    • For the two night option, check-in on Friday is after 4:30pm ET and includes four meals beginning with breakfast on Saturday.  The cost is $94 for adults and $50 for kids (scouts & school-aged siblings).
    • For the one night option, check is Saturday morning after 9am ET and includes three meals beginning with lunch on Saturday.  The cost is $67 for adults and $35 for kids (scouts & school-aged siblings).
  • There is an extra fee for horseback riding ($9), the rifle range ($1 for ten shots), or candle making ($2 per person).  You can only register for these activities in-person, when arrive at the Camp.  There is not a set of scheduled activities for our group, so people can choose to spend their time at the waterfront, climbing, sliding or doing whatever is the most fun.  We also understand parents will have to sign a waiver for the horseback riding, but we haven’t received a copy of it for you to review.

Here is the general schedule for the weekend (keep in mind they are one hour ahead of Chicago time):

  • Friday (if you are planning on two nights)
