Current Camp Usage

Not including council summer camp programs, Camp Michaels is the second most used camp of the four council properties. The majority of usage is by small groups, including Scouting units, however, several large programs are offered on the property. Usage from 2009 can be grouped into four categories that should be considered during the visioning process:

  • Council events – includes National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT), Order of the Arrow (OA) ordeals, Venturing Extreme-o-ree, and several adult leader trainings.
  • District events – includes two Cub Scout Day Camps, Archery and BB Gun Academy, and two District Camporees.
  • Unit events – Cub Scout Pack and Boy Scout Troop campouts or overnighters (no Venturing Crew usage in 2009), and unit meetings.
  • External group usage – non-BSA groups including Army National Guard, Girl Scouts, and the Cincinnati Stake of the LDS Church.

Any plans for development at Camp Michaels should match the expected types of usage. The current usage of the property should be a starting place for discussions on its future. The following charts give an overview of usage statistics of Camp Michaels in 2009, a good representative year for usage data.
