Camp Tekoa is a smoke-free &alcohol free environment.


While we will have the run of the camp, parents are strongly encouraged to monitor their children’s activities at all times, sharing responsibilities for supervising and maintaining care of the camp.



Arrive at camp as your schedule permits.  When you arrive at Camp Tekoa, stop at the Dining Hall to check in and find your cabin assignment. Any food you bring with you can be unpacked in the dining hall. 

Dinner will not be provided at the camp on Friday evening.  You are invited to bring a picnic dinner or grab dinner in Hendersonville. You are not to leave children at camp if you go in to town for dinner. 

9pm-ish  We will gather for the first time as a group in the Dining Hall for a greeting and an important word from the Camp Tekoa Director.
