10 Day Out Meetings

Daily Schedule

This year, Camp Birch will be having open program. Instead of registering for every merit badge and activity, you and your Scouts will be able to easily flit from one activity to another. Some activities, such as High COPE, will still need to be scheduled. Other MB’s that require extra materials such as Basketry will have supplies available in the Trading Post for purchase upon arrival at camp.

Each program area will have a whiteboard present that will display all activities and requirements for the entirety of the week, allowing a Scout with a partial to only attend the day they need to complete a MB. The evening time of every day will allow a total open program in which the special activities and the regular classes are completely open to all Scouts.

If you want to know more about the particulars, check out our Leader’s Guide!


Medical Form

Parts A, B and C are required for all resident camps. Please bring these to the 10 day out meeting. Immunizations need to have a date accompanying them. 

Menu for Summer Camp

We know good food is an essential part of summer camp! Below is the proposed menu for this year. It is subject to change.

2021 Example Menu Scouts BSA Summer Camp.pdf

Qualified Leadership

Reminder for all units, while at camp your unit must meet the minimum number of leaders for the BSA Youth Protection Guidelines. To help with that, Camp Birch will not charge for minimum number of leaders your unit will for this, but there will be a $90 charge for every additional adult to cover cost of food and facility. All unit leaders must be registered adults in the Boy Scouts of America and be current with their Youth Protection Training.

1-10 youth = 2 free adults          11-20 youth = 3 free adults          21-30 youth = 4 free adults          and so on

Summer Camp Registrations

Campsite reservations are now being accepted for 2021 Scouts BSA Summer Camp! Scout/Scouter and activity registration will begin January 2021.

We will be using our online registration system for Scouts BSA Summer Camp in 2020. Payment must accompany all registrations via Credit Card or Electronic Check.
