Summer Camp Information

Summer Camp 

  • Camp Tuckabatchee wakes up the whole child. We seek to develop the whole child: body, mind, emotions, imagination, intuition, will, and self.
  • Campers have the opportunity to try new things and make new friends.
  • Camp Tuckabatchee provides an environment free of technology. Campers interact with staff and other campers and enjoy the opportunity of a break from screen time.
  • The camp is nestled in a beautiful valley surrounded by 210 acres of wooded hills and trails.
  • Housing for overnight programs is rustic cabins that sleep 6-8 campers and staff. Cots and mattresses are provided. Cement bathhouses with flush toilets, grand dining hall for all your meals, afternoon and evening snacks.
  • Camp Tuckabatchee provides a safe, secure, environment where each individual can develop an understanding of and an appreciation for nature. We are constantly striving to keep our facilities and programs current while maintaining strong traditional ties to the past.
  • Camper fees vary depending on the session.
  • Deposits hold your place at camp and are deducted from your camp fee. Deposits are non-refundable.
