Overnight Camps at Tuttle
Overnight Camp Details
Since 1958, Camp Tuttle has provided a safe place for spiritual, environmental, social, and personal transformation. Campers and counselors work to create a safe place to challenge comfort zones, societal norms, thinking patterns, and understanding of the life and world around them. Our Camp experiences are for youth rising grades 2-12 grade.
Through this work, we provide abundant opportunities to connect with self, others, nature, and the Divine. Mountain peaks and rushing rivers root us deeply to God and call for action in protecting, sustaining, and nurturing the creation for which we are responsible.
The typical camp day is jam packed with activities ranging from passive to active and from chosen to guided.
As a part of an Adventure Group, youth participate in working and playing together as a group with 10-12 other campers.
During Camper Choice time, they get to choose whether to rock climb, play Nuke ‘Em (a Tuttle specialty!), do arts & crafts, and many more choices!
In the evening, our talented and skilled counselors will host and facilitate different activities that range from backpacking to capture the flag and more, highlighting the diversity of our staff experiences.
We close out the day with an evening program featuring our chaplain of the week where we enjoy singing around the campfire. We often have guest speakers and workshops to enrich our camp experience.

You'll never go hungry at Camp, not if our professional cooks have anything to say about it! Meals at Camp Tuttle are an opportunity for campers and counselors to connect, share, and dine together. We know that relationships are nurtured around the table, and we consider each meal an opportunity to get to know each other a little bit better. Our meals are served buffet-style by our experienced cooks who ensure each meal is well balanced with fruits, veggies, and salad fixings available at each meal. Our dining staff are able to accommodate a variety of dietary needs and allergy restrictions, so please do not hesitate to let us know your nutritional needs - whether vegan, veggie, kosher, or nut-free, we will ensure your child is eating well throughout their stay.
