Protect Camp Tecumseh from an Industrial Hog Farm


Camp Tecumseh YMCA is opposing a rezoning petition to the White County Commissioners to construct a Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO) of nearly 10,000 hogs just a half mile from Camp property. Such an operation will produce 3.5 million gallons of manure and waste that will be contained on farm property. A CAFO this size just 800 yards from Camp puts at risk the natural environment upon which our 90-year camp tradition depends. Please help us protect future campers from the potential negative impact of odors, air pollution, and possible water contamination by signing the petition below. Camp Tecumseh's 35,000 annual visitors - mostly children - deserve a safe, healthy, and beautiful rural setting to experience nature and the wealth of educational opportunities and outdoor adventures that Camp offers.
