New for Summer '14

High A.C.E.S.

Introducing Tecumseh Council’s newest program…..High ACES!! It’s a High Adventure & Camping Expedition for Scouts. This program is for Scouts age 14-21. Each week of Boy Scout Camp, we will take only 10 Scouts on an adventure of a lifetime. Come in with your Troop on Sunday, and leave Monday morning with a contingent of Super Adventurers!

Join us as we go under ground for a muddy-grimy-coveralls on-mud on your face, good time. We will eat lunch underground as we explore the cave in Kentucky’s Summerset Caving System.

After caving it’s back to Ohio for a Mega Zip Line tour at Markin Farms in West Liberty. With 13 Ziplines and 5 High Ropes courses, you will get to experience every bit of Ziplining you can imagine. Scouts will take two Zip tours, one at Twilight and one during the day, including the Extreme Zipline over a huge pond!

After Zipping around West Liberty it’s time to hop on the Mountain Bikes and ride to Birch Bark Canoe Livery where you will camp on the banks of the Mad River.

The next morning we take a 10 mile Canoe trip. Eat lunch on the river banks, enjoy a lazy paddle trip, and come back to Camp Birch in time for Friday night campfire.

High ACES is an intense, exciting,adventure for older Scouts who are looking for the extra thrill and excitement to complete their summer. Parts A, B & C of the medical form are required. Cost for the trip is $395 and includes all activities, all meals, t-shirt, patch, transportation, and an exciting adventure. A nonrefundable deposit of $100 guarantees your spot. High ACES is limited to the first 10 participants each week.
