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 sleepaway camp for boys and girls ages 6-18.



Located on 1100 acres nestled in Harrison County, YMCA Camp Tippecanoe provides the perfect atmosphere for traditional sleepaway camp.  Campers enjoy the waterfront on Clendening Lake, miles of hiking trails, and plenty of rolling hills.


YMCA Camp Tippecanoe is more than a community of campers - it's a family.  Tippecanoe's campers form friendships that last for life, and often feel more like family.  Our counselors and staff form bonds that cannot be broken over the years.  This is why many campers and staff return for years on end: YMCA Camp Tippecanoe strengthens community and fosters relationships that last a lifetime.
