Nestled in the lakes of Kosciusko County in Indiana, Camp Crosley is located on the shores of Lake Tippecanoe. Since 1915, Camp Crosley continues to be about learning life skills, building character, and developing meaningful relationships. But few environments are as special as camp, where individuals become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social, and educational activities. Camp Crosley teaches self reliance, a love for nature, and the development of attitudes and practices that instill leadership – all while having fun at the waterfront, campfires, archery, and many more camp activities.
When people experience Camp Crosley, they know and feel that they belong to a place that transforms lives.
