May 11: Birchwood Camp Open House
You are invited to join us for this awesome, family friendly event on Saturday, May 11, 2013! Those who would like to get some exercise & see a different view of our camp grounds can join us for our 1 mile run/walk in the morning. We’ll also have free open house & campfire lunch afterwards– we hope you’ll join us for all or part of our annual spring Open House at Birchwood Camp.
10am: 1 mile Fun Run
Attention: The 5k has been cancelled for this year due to trail conditions which have made the course inaccessible. Last fall’s windstorm resulted in numerous trees blocking the perimeter trails of camp. We had hoped to be able to clear all the trees before the 5k race, but the trails are still snow covered and have not allowed for access. Please join us for the 1 mile fun run!
Fun run/walk participants must check in at Fireweed Hall between 9:15 and 9:45am. During this time, participants will pick up their bibs, sign in for their event, and get a quick trail briefing. Race start time is 10am.
We love it when participants preregister for the fun run, and you can even save yourself a couple bucks by signing up early. See the links below to preregister online. Special rates are also available for active military. Sorry, there will be no refunds if you preregister and can’t make it — consider it a donation!Fun run entry fees: Adults $10, Children $5, Families $20 (add $5 to these fees for registrations on the day of the race)
An awards ceremony for the top finishers for the 1 mile fun run/walk will take place at 10:30am at the fire circle.
10:30am – 1pm: Open House
Join us for hot dogs, S’mores and more around the campfire. Tours of the cabins & grounds will be available for those new to Birchwood. Come see what’s new at Birchwood if you haven’t been out for a while; Enjoy a relaxed and family-friendly atmosphere; Even take a walk around our lake. Lunch will start around 11am and you may come and go as you please!
The open house is a free event and a great way to introduce friends & young children to Birchwood Camp!
