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 2022 Scouts BSA Summer Camp! Scout/Scouter and activity registration will begin January 2022.

We will be using our online registration system for Scouts BSA Summer Camp in 2022. 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, Adults 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 [Click for member's page]. Please note that anyone who becomes a unit manager will have access to edit online Summer Camp registrations.

Campership Application

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 Eli Underwood at [Click for member's page] or Council Service Center by March 26, 2022. Unit leaders will be notified of approved camperships by April 23, 2022. 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.
