Campership Application

In these times we need to remember the Scout Law more than ever. We understand that these are unprecedented times for everyone, and in an effort to be "helpful" we are waiving the deadline for the Campership Applications. Any one that needs assistance for a Scout to come to camp will get some form of help. Please still send completed campership applications to Damon.kaufman@scouting.org at your earliest convenience. 

To ensure that every Scout can attend Camp Birch regardless of financial resources, camperships are available to any Scout registered in Tecumseh Council for a percentage of the cost of camp. The Scout’s family and Unit Leader must complete this application and return it to the Camp Director DL Kaufman at Damon.Kaufman@scouting.org or Council Service Center by March 27, 2020. Unit leaders will be notified of approved camperships by April 17, 2020. Camperships are awarded on a basis of family need. 

Camperships must be redeemed by the Early Bird deadline or they will be forfeited and VOID. Application does not guarantee approval. 


Camp Program/Payment Policy

In the event you, your Scout, or your Unit cannot attend camp due to COVID-19, all paid fees will be refunded in an expedited manner.
