Guide To Summer Camps
What we're all about...
Located on a perfect lake in Minnesota, Camp Birchwood offers campers ages 7 to 17 a tremendous variety of water sports activities and all kinds fun things to do 'on land.' Every day, girls choose four activities they want to do the next day. These include: sailing, windsurfing, waterskiing, tubing, knee-boarding, wake-boarding, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, mountain biking, tennis, horseback riding (Western, English & trail riding), archery, riflery, arts & crafts, pottery, drama, dance, fitness sports, and the opportunity to go on a variety of out-of-camp wilderness adventure trips (via kayaks, canoes, and bikes).With caring, dedicated, and insightful college-age women as instructors, girls have the amazing opportunity to not just 'do' activities, but to become very accomplished in many different areas. Girls go home with lots of confidence and an 'I can do it!' attitude. The friends they share their days with, space with, and memories with, are friends to last a lifetime. And without boys around, girls enjoy a much-needed break from the image-based pressures and competition they face in today's society. A passion for providing girls with a genuinely kind, welcoming, and accepting place has been the focus of Birchwood since our founding in 1958. We invite you to check us out at www.campbirchwood.com.
