Unfortunately, Camp Tippecanoe does not have enough capacity for families to stay alone in a cabin. We will do our best to keep all tribes together. If you have multiple children and would like to stay together as a family in one cabin, please select the same tribe for your entire family when you register.
Upon arrival at Tippecanoe, all campers must check in at the main lodge on Friday evening or upon arrival on Saturday. After check-in you can drive to your assigned cabin.
Please contact Medicine Man Michael Rollins if you have any questions about the campout. E-mail him at email@example.com or via his cell phone at 440-336-2558.

WHAT IS PROVIDED BY CAMP TIPPECANOE?
Cabins will be furnished with bunk beds; each side of camp has its own bath house.
PLEASE NOTE: To reduce the cost of the campout, Saturday dinner WILL NOT be provided by Camp Tippecanoe, please plan accordingly with your tribe or other tribes.
The cost for the campout includes meals for the weekend. All provided meals will be in the main lodge. Camp Tippecanoe provides the following meals – Saturday breakfast and lunch, and Sunday breakfast. Coffee, milk, and juice are provided at all meals. For those with dietary restrictions and food allergies please contact Michael Rollins at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have children with food allergies, you are welcome to bring food from home for your use at mealtimes. This food can be stored in the kitchen refrigerator/freezer in the main lodge. Be sure to label all containers with your child’s name.
CARDBOARD BOAT RACE:
Each tribe will try their hand at crafting a boat out of only cardboard and packing tape. The longhouse will provide each tribe with 4 rolls of packing tape. Each tribe will be responsible for their own cardboard. Tribes are not allowed to add anything that will help give the boat more buoyancy, such as pool noodles etc. However, tribes are allowed to decorate the boat with whatever they like. If you have a tape gun at home, I would highly recommend bringing it!
On Saturday at the campout, we will hold our annual charity walk to benefit St. Herman House.
