Birchwood Camp programs are focused on faith formation, building genuine community, and providing safe spaces for character development in our children and teens. We provide a variety of summer camp sessions for all ages of children and teens, as well as some year-round programs for teens & adults. Birchwood Camp is a member of the American Camp Association and has achieved accreditation status, by completing a voluntary peer review process of standards applicable to our program. We hope you will join us soon at a Birchwood Camp program!
Winter Youth Break-Away (WYBA): December 27-30
A winter camp for students in grades 6-12. Enjoy four days full of sledding, friends, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, delicious food, broom ball, worship, games, snow shelter building, crafts, a sweat-prayer experience in our sweat lodge, ice skating, and much more! Campers will have the opportunity to build community, make new friends, try new winter activities, experience different and unique worship styles and have some fun during their winter break!
As with our summer camps, WYBA campers will sleep in cabins with others of their own gender and age-level. Campers will spend part of the retreat in mixed-gender small “family” groups that are organized by middle school and high school; the groups will join together for our large group activities, worship and meals. As usual, our awesome camp staff and adult volunteers will be present and engaged with the campers to ensure a wonderful and safe winter camp experience.
Check in will be held in the Main Lodge at 4 p.m. on Friday, December 27. Parent pick up will take place at 3 p.m. on Monday, December 30.
