Summer Camp Information

Summer Camp 

  • Nestled in a beautiful valley surrounded by 210+ acres of wooded hills, trails, and winding creeks Camp Tuckabatchee enriches the lives of children through nature.

  • Camp Tuckabatchee provides a safe tech-free space for youth to discover and experience the natural world in a co-ed, rustic environment.

  • Through our programs we aim to provide adventures that help develop the whole child: body, mind, emotions, imagination, intuition, will, and self.

  • Housing for resident camp are rustic cabins furnished with basic cots. Meals are shared in McAtee Lodge and around campfires.

  • Days are filled with a long morning program and several shorter afternoon programs.

  • Activities include arts & crafts, swimming, creek walks, trail hiking, fishing, archery, games, ourdoor cooking, canoeing, and more!

  • Evenings are filled with group games, storytelling, campfires, and songs.

  • A confirmation letter and supply list will be sent at registration.
