Senior Leadership Trip – 5 Day Trip

This trip is lead by Birchwood counselors, Casio aka Jacob (right) and Nacho aka Jack (left).

This trip is very special because it’s a trip just for our Senior Leadership Campers! They planned this trip from start to finish and we’re very impressed with the route they mapped. Their trip begins with a mighty portage deep into canoe country!

Poplar Paddle – 4 Day Trip

This trip is lead by co-counselors Pelé aka Bruce (left) and Dragon aka Max (right).

The BWCA entry point for this trip is called the Lizz and Swamp entry point but don’t let the name fool you, this entry point is the gateway to the quintessential canoe country with its long narrow lakes and plentiful wildlife. Specifically, Winchell Lake is a camp favorite for fishing!

As our campers set their sights on adventure, let us wish them warm nights and perhaps a glimpse of the northern lights! In every walk or paddle with nature, one receives far more than he seeks.

Happy Trails,

Ashley, Director
