REGISTRATION:

NOW OPEN! Deadline is Monday, May 30th, 2022.

Please be sure to A.) Register and B.) Submit payment using the form below to complete the entire registration process! Payment will be via PayPal.

Registration is on a first come first serve basis. The deadline for signup is May 30th, 2022. It’s shaping up to be a great time for all, so don’t wait until the last minute to sign up.  Place any requests in the comments field under registration.

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.

GENERAL ITEMS TO BRING:

Bring adequate (and extra) clothing appropriate for the time of year, boots, jacket, sweatshirt, hat, gloves, ponchos, CVNSND 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.

WHAT IS PROVIDED BY CAMP TIPPECANOE?

Cabins will be furnished with bunk beds; each side of camp has its own bath house.  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, lunch, and dinner, 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.

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!

CHARITY WALK:

On Saturday at the campout, we will hold our annual charity walk to benefit the Allison Rose Foundation.

After the tragic loss of their daughter, the founders have turned their tragedy into purpose with the creation of the Allison Rose Foundation (ARF), dedicated to changing the lives of food allergy families through education, awareness, research, and advocacy.  Severe food allergies continue to be misunderstood and education is crucial.  If proper food allergy education is put in place, everyone will be properly informed and prepared to understand, recognize, and effectively support a severe food allergy, and manage a life-threatening reaction.

If you’re able, please bring a monetary donation to benefit this valuable organization and all they do in our community.  All participants will earn this patch:
