How can I get updates from Camp Tecumseh?

Welcome, parents! While your child is at camp, you can come here to view photos, watch videos, and get other updates from Camp Tecumseh. You can also send an email to your camper. Learn about all of our changes and protocol to keep kids as safe and healthy as possible this summer: Summer Camp 2021.

Q: Where can I find precamp information and required camper forms?

A: You can access all of this stuff on our family portal for parents / guardians once your camper’s registration is confirmed. The family portal (also called the Parent Dashboard) gives you 24/7 access to pre-camp information and all required forms.

Q: What else can I do to get my kids ready for summer camp?

A: Visit the American Camp Association parent website. The site has some great information and resources for families that will help you get your kids ready for any summer camp, including Camp Hobe’. Scroll down the page to “The Camp Resource for Families”

Q: What should my kids bring to summer camp with them?

A: Your post-registration information will include a general list of things that they should bring, as well as things that they should not bring. Please, please, please put their names on everything.

Q: What if my child gets homesick?

A: Every year, a few kids get homesick at summer camp. This is a normal part of being away from home. And, it’s part of growing up, as children gain independence and begin spending time away from their family. Camp may be very different from a child’s home environment – rooming with others and different food, for example.

Q: Will my children be able to call me from summer camp if they are homesick?

A: Usually not, although a staff person may call on their behalf. We have found that having children call home usually makes homesickness worse. If a child is very homesick, the camp staff may call you for the child. This lets the parent and staff person talk about the situation without upsetting the child.
