WHO WE ARE

YMCA Camp Tippecanoe is much more than a summer activity for kids.  We are a place for values, learning, skill building, personal growth, fun, and adventure.  YMCA Camp Tippecanoe has been providing opportunities for kids to learn and grow since 1958. We create a culture of excellence with our staff, who are trained to think of the camper’s safety and happiness first.  We are a traditional residential camp for boys and girls ages 7-17.
