Your Summer Home Awaits

Our goal is for Birchwood to feel like a home away from home!

While summer camp is meant to be rustic, we take every measure to make cabins, common spaces, and bathrooms feel like a second home. Check out the accommodations!

The Quintessential Bunk House

When campers are in camp, they sleep in dry comfortable bunks with cabin groups of two counselors, and five kids in their age group. Our bunk houses are a "bring your own bedding" sort of setup. We've seen everything from flannel sheets with matching comforter to a simple sleeping bag dawn our bunk mattresses. We encourage our campers to make this their own private little space...a bit like a fort.

Campers have access to the shower house just down the string light path. The shower house has individual bathrooms containing a private shower, sink and a flush toilet. Ahh privacy!

Our senior campers get to stay in the Summit Cabin, which is our biggest cabin and the only bunk house with electricity and wooden shutters (as opposed to canvas).

a Dining Hall with a View
and a clubhouse with all the important foosball

Reeve Hall is our modern dining hall and gathering spot. It has a wood stove for those few chilly mornings and on muggy afternoons we open all the doors to let the breeze sweep in from the river.

It seats fifty people and serves three meals each day, plus snacks during the evening. Our kitchen staff are hired with culinary experience and/or training. Our cooks come to camp because of their passion to provide nutritious meals and to be in this great outdoor environment. With an office like Reeve Hall, it's an outdoorsy cooks paradise.

Now, about the clubhouse! Seagull Lounge is considered the hangout spot! Much like camper's individual bunks, Seagull Lounge feels like a fort. If we're having a rainy day, campers can sign up for activities like chess, foosball, cribbage, or guitar inside the lounge.
