On both sides of the main campus, wetlands, forests and streams provide an opportunity for campers to learn about and appreciate their beautiful, natural environment in a secluded and safe setting. Tecumseh also owns two islands offshore, providing a convenient destination for day and overnight camping trips.
The waterfront, comprised of over a mile of sandy beach, provides for all types of boating and swimming activities. Tecumseh’s fleet consists of a dozen sunfish, many canoes and kayaks and three inboard craft to tow inner tubes, wakeboards and skis. We believe Tecumseh is still the largest landowner on Lake Winnipesaukee.
Camp Tecumseh is fully equipped with facilities comprised of:
Eight beautiful clay tennis courts (plus a practice backboard)
Two regulation size basketball courts with lighting for night games
Two fields for soccer and football (Grant Field)
A regulation size lacrosse field (Stanley Field)
A state of the art sprint track plus high jump, long jump and shot put areas
One full sized baseball field and one junior baseball field
A baseball batting cage with two JUGS pitching machines
A dedicated street hockey rink
A fully equipped weight training facility
Wrestling area with mat
An archery range
Two fencing stations
A fully accredited, well supervised rifle range
Horizontal and vertical climbing walls in barn
2500 sq. ft. chipping/putting green
Beach volleyball court
Offshore island for overnight camping and canoe trips
The Track and Field Program has a one quarter mile track laid out on Grant Field. Tecumseh also has a regulation sized, state of the art sprint track with hurdles, in addition to all necessary equipment for the high jump, long jump, pole vault and shot put.
All meals are served family style in the large dining hall, located next to the infirmary, which is staffed 24/7 by our R.N. and Certified Trainer. The Creamery and Shover Hall (the library) are located next to the basketball courts. The Sunbeam Shack houses our publication: “The Sunbeam” a weekly highlight.
The Lodge is Camp’s heart and soul: housing plaques of every camper to attend Tecumseh and it is the location of our nightly songs and speeches. Rumor has it that the spirits of many former camp legends inhabit the Lodge as well.
FARMHOUSE & TRUNK ROOM
The Farmhouse and the Trunk Room date back to the early 1800s.
Campers can practice carpentry and building skills under supervision of counselors in the woodshop.
Built in the 60’s, the Opera House hosts camp socials, skits and our annual Gilbert and Sullivan operetta.
