Only at Camp Birchwood for Boys are you able to paddle from one of the Camp docks into what many come from around the Country to experience: the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. In fact, camps from all over the midwest drive for hours by van just to start their camping adventures at our doorstep, and we do not blame them one bit.
Each camper gets to select the trips they wish to travel with and all trips have two qualified Birchwood counselors and four to seven boys of similar age or experience. A few examples of trips we would normally offer at Camp Birchwood for Boys include (This is just a sampling of the awesome trips we'd offer in any given week at Camp):
DON'T WORRY, experience is NOT NECESSARY to have the time of your life at Birchwood. Throughout each camper's first day of camp, he will participate in Gunflint School. During Gunflint School, boys will learn and practice outdoor skills such as campsite set-up, tent pitching, trail safety, campfire cooking, canoeing, kayaking and packing dos and don'ts. Gunflint School is conducted in a safe and supportive environment to assure that at the end of the day, each camper feels accomplished and ready for a new adventure.
