Birchwood Camp’s mission is to build community on common ground. We strive to offer hospitality to all, and we open our doors to groups both religious and secular. Guests are invited to retreat to a place of tranquility, a place apart from the everyday world to experience renewal and inspiration.
Birchwood Summer Camps
Birchwood Camp provides unique and meaningful faith-based residential summer camps for children and youth of all ages. Camp sessions range from 3 to 7 days in length and are held at our beautiful site in Chugiak. Our camps provide safe spaces for spiritual formation, genuine community, and character development. Our camp is accredited by the American Camp Association, which establishes best practices for camps.
