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 cvnsndmedman@gmail.com or via his cell phone at 440-336-2558.


Bring adequate (and extra) clothing appropriate for the time of year, boots, jacket, sweatshirt, hat, gloves, ponchos, CVNSD vest & headdress, swim suites, and towels.  Remember to bring flashlights, torch & cotton rag (for the Saturday night torch march), bug repellent, lawn chairs, first aid kits, sleeping bag & pillow, sports equipment, camera, games, and fishing gear if you want to fish.  Bring your toiletries such as toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, washcloth, towels, soap, razor (or not), and sunscreen.  If your Tribe is cooking dinner at your cabin Saturday night bring your own food & cooking equipment.  Other optional items include coffee pot, matches, grill, charcoal lighter, skewers, cooler, pop, canteen, snacks, cups, plates, towels, folding table, and s’more ingredients.


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 cvnsndmedman@gmail.com.  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.


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 Sunday, we will hold our annual charity walk to benefit The American Legion Post 196 (Brecksville).

Their Mission:

The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veteran’s organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation’s largest wartime veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow servicemembers and veterans. Hundreds of local American Legion programs and activities strengthen the nation one community at a time. American Legion Baseball is one of the nation’s most successful amateur athletic programs, educating young people about the importance of sportsmanship, citizenship and fitness. The Operation Comfort Warriors program supports recovering wounded warriors and their families, providing them with “comfort items” and the kind of support that makes a hospital feel a little bit more like home. The Legion also raises millions of dollars in donations at the local, state and national levels to help veterans and their families during times of need and to provide college scholarship opportunities. The American Legion is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization with great political influence perpetuated by its grass-roots involvement in the legislation process from local districts to Capitol Hill. Legionnaires’ sense of obligation to community, state and nation drives an honest advocacy for veterans in Washington. The Legion stands behind the issues most important to the nation’s veterans’ community, backed by resolutions passed by volunteer leadership. The American Legion’s success depends entirely on active membership, participation and volunteerism. The organization belongs to the people it serves and the communities in which it thrives.

If you are able, please bring a monetary donation to benefit this valuable organization and all they do for our veterans.

All participants will earn this patch:
