Tecumseh Island for First Year Scouts

Tecumseh Island at Boy Scout Summer Camp is Camp Birch’s program for First Year Scouts. The program is in its 38th year! We focus on learning Scout skills, getting to know camp, teamwork, working with others, the patrol method, and rank advancement.

Tecumseh Island is a full day program. Half the day is spent in Tecumseh Island, half is spent in merit badges. Scouts will take Swimming and First Aid the other half of the day. Scouts work on requirements for Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class, leaving only a few requirements left before they are eligible for First Class. 

We do not sign off on requirements in their book. Scoutmasters will need to review with their Scouts the information covered to make sure they retain what they have learned. Tecumseh Island Scouts will work as a patrol, tying knots, working on requirements, and completing an over night outpost on Thursday.

For full details on Tecumseh Island, check out this promo!

Summer Camp Registrations

Campsite reservations are now being accepted for 2018 Boy Scout Summer Camp! Scout/Scouter and activity registration will begin January 2018.

We will be using our online registration system for Boy Scout Summer Camp in 2018. Payment must accompany all registrations via Credit Card or Electronic Check.

You will need to be logged into your MyCouncil account on our website in order to process online Summer Camp registrations. If you do not have a MyCouncil account, instructions on how to create one can be found by clicking the “How to Join MyCouncil” icon at the bottom of our homepage.

Online Summer Camp registration is a two step process: 1. Reserving a Campsite and 2. Adding Scouts and Activities.

Reserving a Campsite 

On the left-hand side of our homepage, click “Summer Programs” then click the “Boy Scout Summer Camp Information” icon. On the right-hand side of the page click the “Register” icon for the week you would like to attend. Follow the steps to reserve a campsite and pay the $100 campsite deposit.

The individual who reserves the campsite for the unit automatically becomes the online Summer Camp registration unit manager and is the only one with permissions to continue with the next registration step. Additional unit managers can be added by having the original unit manager email a request including name and email address of the person to be added to tara.corns@scouting.org. Please note that anyone who becomes a unit manager will have access to edit online Summer Camp registrations.

Adding Scouts and Activities

You will manage the remainder of your online Summer Camp registration through your unit page on our council website. Tecumseh Council units can find this page by clicking “Unit Information” on the left-hand side of our homepage and searching for their unit. Out-of-Council units can obtain this link by emailing a request for the link to tara.corns@scouting.org.

On the right-hand side of  your unit page, click on "Registrations”, then click “Boy Scout Camp Week #”. This is where you will go from this point on to add and pay for Scouts and add activities to Scouts. To add Scouts you will click the “Participants” tab, then “Register New Participant” and follow the instructions to add and pay for Scouts. You will also be able to edit and make changes to registrations from this page.

If you have any questions regarding online Summer Camp registration, please contact Tara Corns at tara.corns@scouting.org or 937-325-6449 x101.

Campership Application

To ensure that every boy can attend camp regardless of financial resources, camperships are available to any Scout registered in Tecumseh Council for up to one third of the cost of camp. The Scout’s family and Unit Leader must complete this application and return it to the Council Service Center by March 23, 2018. Unit leaders will be notified of approved camperships by April 13. Camperships are awarded on a basis of family need. Application does not guarantee approval.
