WHY CAMP MICHAELS?

In today’s world, Camp Michaels creates a place where our young people can:

Learn what it takes to be a leader. A wilderness setting is the perfect classroom for young people to grow through our National Youth Leadership Training program.

Better understand how we interact with the world around us. The Sustainability Education Center is a collaborative environment for Scouts as well as other youth groups and schools.

Experience the wilderness in a way not available to most young people. The high adventure challenges presented make Camp Michaels a unique facility.

By supporting the development of this camp, you are creating a place where the youth of today can become the leaders of tomorrow. Camp Michaels has long been the Dan Beard Council’s beloved rustic camp in the beautiful back-country of Northern Kentucky. Beginning in the summer of 2010, the council began a feedback and visioning process to determine the future of this unique property.  We’re please to share with you the current plans for the future of Camp Michaels.
