Camp Hugh Taylor Birch Vehicle Policy


The safety of our Scouts, leaders and Scouting families at Camp Birch at all times is the upmost importance to our council leadership. After extensive review, Tecumseh Council has implemented safe vehicle guidelines at Camp Birch that are becoming standard protocol at many other youth serving camp facilities. Please understand that the purpose of this policy is to protect the youth and the adults who visit Camp Birch –Jim Nolan Scout Executive/CEO and Clayton Hays, Council President

In order to ensure the safety of the campers and the staff at Camp Birch, please observe the following during your visit:

  1. On arrival, please park in the parking lot and check in with Campmaster or Ranger at the McMillian building.
  2. After dropping off equipment in campsites or buildings, all vehicles must be parked in either the main parking lot or the Adams building parking lot. Units are welcome to leave trailers at campsites.
  3. All passengers must be in seats, with seatbelts. It is not permitted to ride in truck beds, trailers etc.
  4. Camp speed limit is 10 miles per hour.
  5. No vehicle traffic is permitted in camp between 7:00 AM Saturday and 7:00AM Sunday. Please contact the Campmaster or Ranger if other arrangements are needed
  6. All vehicles must stay on designated roadways.
  7. This policy is subject to adjustment during camporees or other large events.

Any failure to follow these driving procedures will lead to immediate loss of driving privileges

Your understanding and cooperation is appreciated. Camp Birch is a busy place, and it is not unusual to have 200 plus campers on any given weekend. We have experienced close calls with vehicle/camper accidents in the past and want to ensure the safety of everyone who visits Camp Birch. If you have any questions regarding the vehicle policy please contact Camp Ranger Bryan Spink at (937) 286-3372.

Please share this with your unit’s adults and indicate below that you have read and understand this policy.

In Scouting,

Tecumseh Council


I have read and agreed to observe the Camp Birch Vehicle Policy._________________________
