Help Camp Tesahe! (Tah-say-hee)

Camp Tesahe (Tah-say-hee) is a one week summer camp in the beautiful mountains of southern WV. We provide campers ages 7 to 17 the opportunity to experience nature, grow spiritually and socially, and develop a strong sense of self-worth and self-esteem. Our mission is to ensure that for at least one week out of the year, campers are allowed to absolutely be themselves in a nonjudgmental, supportive, and creativity inspired atmosphere. We strive to give campers the opportunity to become "unplugged" from their cell phones, iPods, iPads, and game consoles and provide them with the opportunity to connect with one another and our staff on a more basic level.

Camp Tesahe's largest program is our backpacking program in which groups of 10-12 campers experience true backcountry hiking and camping under the direction of experienced staff. Campers pack in and pack out all of their necessities (food, clothing, tents, etc.) and learn teamwork and self reliance. We also offer campers traditional summer camp activities like arts and crafts, canoeing, horseback riding, and swimming.


We are a GREAT summer camp under the direction of Jenny Mishoe and Patrick and Angie Ross who have a combined 56 years of successful summer camp direction and experience. We, as directors, left our positions at another camp to begin Camp Tesahe in hopes of carrying on traditions that we learned and grew up with at our previous camp. Unfortunately, management decisions brought about broad sweeping changes and a large shift in the mission of that camp, which ran successfully for 49 years. We felt that we could no longer offer campers the very best experiences there, so we've decided to branch out on our own.


A large part of our mission is also to offer this amazing experience to campers who may not be able to afford the cost of attendance, which is approximately $300.00. Not only are we in need of cost of business monies, but we are in desperate need of money to maintain our scholarship fund so that children who are in financial need do not miss the opportunity to experience all that Camp Teshae has to offer. All donations are tax deductible.

Thanks to all of our loyal families and our generous donors, Camp Tesahe had a wonderful 2017 season. It was our most successful season yet and we were able to serve over 100 campers!

As we move forward, we need to think about purchasing some additional equipment since our numbers are increasing. We also need to raise funds to have available for scholarships so that ALL children can attend camp, regardless of their family's financial situation.

Please keep spreading the word about our camp and donate a little (or a lot) if you're able.

Thanks,
Angie, Patrick, Jenny, & CT Crew

Thank you to everyone who has supported our camp over the past four years. We're inching closer to our fourth season and are super excited for what promises to be the best week of our summer. We could still use some more donations to cover scholarships and equipment purchases. If you're able to donate a little (or a lot) please help us out.

Thanks SO much,
Camp Tesahe

We are gearing up for our FOURTH summer of Camp Tesahe. Time sure does fly!

We have continued to grow each year and judging by the incoming applications, this will be our biggest year yet.

We are again asking for donations of any size to help us continue this program. We keep tuition low so that more families can afford to send their children to camp. We also provide scholarships so that no child is turned away. All donated money goes directly to our program for scholarships and supplies.

Thank you for your continued support. We are so grateful for the generosity of our Camp Family.

Angie, Jenny, Patrick, & CT Family
