"Several weeks ago, the Tecumseh Council staff and volunteers were working with the Champion City Scholars program on team building and other COPE (challenging outdoor personal experience) course activities. One of the Boy Scout volunteers that was running the program had a Camp Birch shirt on that day doing some advertising for us.
A 17 year old young lady approached the volunteer and stated that she went to Camp Birch Challenge Camp when she was seven years old. She remembered Camp Birch vividly because it was the first time anyone ever believed in her. That week of challenge camp as she went on to say changed my life. She attributes that one experience for providing her with the confidence to do anything including being in the Champion City Scholars program."
