History tells us that Lake Beebe was, from early times, used by the Ottawa, Potawatomi and Chippewa Indians as camping and fishing grounds. During some periods they used the area as a more permanent site. These tribes did not use tepees but lived in dome-shaped lodges covered with wood bark. Lake Beebe, a beautiful spring-fed lake approximately 30 acres in size with towering pines in the surrounding acreage lies not far northeast of Clare, Michigan and is centered in a 1,164 acre tract.

In 1924 the camp at Lake Arnold became inadequate for the growing area Boy Scout Council. Members of The Saginaw Rotary Club became aware of this problem and, with Boy Scout executives began to look for a new site. Beebe Lake, located on a 440 acre site just north of Clare, was inspected. The search team was particularly impressed with the beauty, location, and adaptability of the place. The Boy Scouts moved into the camp at the end of August of 1925 and immediately began projects for improvement to make the grounds suitable for a Boy Scout Camp. A mess hall was built, a bathing beach was prepared, and a new dam was built which raised the lake level by four feet. In 1932 an additional 40 acres was purchased, in 1950 another 40 acres, and in 1964 another 583 acres making the total 1,063.

Summer Camp at Camp Rotary features: 64 different Merit Badges, Exciting evening programs, Family Style meals in the Dining Hall, Inflatables and Stand Up Paddleboards!

We hope to see you out on Lake Beebe and on our many acres of beautiful camp this coming summer!

Tenting:

Camp Rotary utilizes a “Bring Your Own Tent to Camp” program. Units attending a Summer Camp Session at camp will need to bring their own personal tents.

If you have Scouts that will be attending the PATH Program, you will want to make sure you pack them an extra tent for their overnight program.

Changes from previous camping seasons:

  • All campsites will be left bare, in order to make sure there is enough room for all personal tents
  • There will be no camp provided tent platforms (pallets)
  • There will be no camp provided cots or mattresses
  • Each sub-camp will be supplied with a single, empty wall tent with a platform for the unit to use for storage or changing

Sub Camps:

All of Camp Rotary’s 11 campsites are split into two (2) sub camps (e.g. Schuck Campsite is split into “Schuck 1” and “Schuck 2”).

Camp Rotary allows units to pick the campsites in which they wish to reside for the week at the time of registration. Camp Rotary is set up and designed to accept two (2) units per campsite, and the registration system is set up to allow for two (2) units to register in each campsite, unless its capacity has been met by a single unit. Large units, that typically take up an entire campsite, will be assigned to the campsite as a whole.

Smaller units, who will be sharing a campsite, will be assigned to the proper sub camp by the camp management. Your unit will be notified of your sub camp prior to your arrival and will be guided to your site on Sunday by your Unit Host.

Please note that Camp Rotary reserves the right to change your campsite up to and including the day of arrival.
