2016 Spring Open House: May 22

You are invited to join us for this awesome, family friendly event on Sunday, May 22, 2016! Those who would like to get some exercise & see a nice view of our camp grounds can join us for our 1 mile Fun Run/Walk at 1pm. Proceeds from the Fun Run support Birchwood Camp’s scholarship fund. We’ll also have free open house, campfire & fun around camp, with activities to enjoy with your family. We hope you’ll join us for all or part of our annual spring Open House at Birchwood Camp!

1:00 pm: Fun Run/ Walk

Join us for some exercise in the beautiful outdoors and help make camp experiences possible for kids!  You can run, walk, skip, bike or even cart-wheel; the course is approximately 1 mile.  Fun Run participants must check in at Fireweed Hall between 12:45-1:00 pm. During this time participants will sign in for their event and get a quick trail briefing. Fun Run start time is 1:00 pm.

We love it when participants pre-register for the Fun Run, as it makes everything run smoother on May 22nd. See the links below to register online.  Sorry, there will be no refunds if you register early and can’t make it!

Your Fun Run entry fee is by donation and supports camp programs & scholarships. We suggest a minimum $10 donation per person, and we encourage you to generously support camp in whatever way you can.


An awards ceremony for the top finishers for the 1 mile fun run/walk will take place at 1:30 pm at the fire circle.

1:00 – 5:00 pm: Open House

Enjoy a free, family friendly afternoon at our site in Chugiak (South Birchwood Exit). There will be lots of great activities like s’mores and hot dogs around the campfire, games on the field, horseshoes, family scavenger hunts & fun around camp. Our trails will be open for hiking, and we will have canoeing and stand up paddle boarding available starting at 2 pm.

Tours of the cabins & camp grounds will be available for those new to Birchwood Camp. Our open house is a free event and a great way to introduce friends & young children to Birchwood Camp! Everyone is welcome – no need to RSVP.
