Lead the Pack

The Senior Leadership Program (SLP) is a four week program offered to campers entering 10th, 11th or 12th grade. If accepted into the program, seniors will participate as a camper while partaking in leadership sessions similar to Birchwood's staff training.

Leadership training sessions are fun, laid back and lead by specially trained counselors (usually around a campfire). During the first week of camp, senior campers will assist trip leaders with "Gunflint School" (orientation). Traditionally, seniors follow "Gunflint School" with a two-night team building trip where evenings are filled with leadership training.

Senior campers are expected to assist trip leaders, lead an activity once per week, participate in a special senior leadership wilderness trip, and act as a role model to younger campers. The "senior camper" title is a coveted position within our community.

The Senior Leadership Program is designed to provide a leadership experience that doesn't just look good on a resume but sticks with the camper for life. 

Our Senior Leadership Program gives young men the responsibilities of a leader...

...and the mentorship to uphold those responsibilities as role models to younger campers.
