Camp Hugh Taylor Birch's Dining Hall

The Main Road to Camp Camp Birch's lake

In 1932, Camp Hugh Taylor Birch began with a 25-acre of land and a vision. Today, Camp Birch has grown to encompass 440 acres of woodland that serves our Scouting and non-Scouting communities on a year-round basis.

Camp Birch – replete with a dining hall that serves 300, an Olympic size swimming pool, a 10-acre lake, and many other facilities – is our outdoor facility that we use to teach character, citizenship, personal fitness, and environmental awareness.

Besides our Cub and Boy Scouts, Camp Birch is used by churches, schools, other youth groups, the National Guard and college organizations. Every weekend, 10 to 15 different groups are camping or using the Adams Training Building, our training and educational center, for meetings.

Several renovations have been completed recently at Camp Birch, including new shower and restroom facilities. Four new modern cabins with similar facilities have also been built.

Adjacent to Clifton Gorge, John Bryan State Park and Glen Helen Nature Preserve, Camp High Taylor Birch is an integral part of 2,000 continuous acres of natural woodlands.

The United States Air Force MuseumExternal Link is located less than an hour's drive from Camp Birch.
