Our Tepeetonka Leadership Camp provides young teens with a fun and meaningful experience, combining aspects of being a camper and a staff member.  We focus on individual development, team building, and self-discovery.  Campers leave our TLC program more confident of their skills in leadership and public service, as well as interpersonal skills. While campers spend time at camp enjoying and leading traditional camp activities, they also journey on several field trips!


  • FREE daily bus transportation for your child to/from camp

  • Before and after camp childcare (7:30am to 5:30pm) for a one-time fee of $49.00


Tepeetonka Leadership Camp

AGES 14-15


Family Night- This year we are hosting ONE family night event each session. Family night for every camp will be on the Tuesday evening during the second week of your camper's session 6:00pm-7:30pm.

Camp Overnights- Tepeetonka campers experience two distinctive overnights during their two-week experience. The day following the first overnight campers will arise to a pancake breakfast. Both overnights are bursting with activities, songs, skits and special events. The second overnight is when the unforgettable closing campfire and special awards night is held for our campers.


High Ropes Course-Tepee campers are challenged on our state-of-the-art High Ropes Course, the largest course in the state of South Dakota! The course increases self-confidence, team building, courage, and a sense of accomplishment in a safe environment. Campers are all able to be successful at their own level in this "challenge by choice" activity.
