Session 1: July 15-19, 2019
Session 2: July 22-26, 2019
For campers entering grades 6-8; Camp Fee: $350 (Fee covers your food, most of the canoe and camping gear, and transportation to and from the Nancy Lake Canoe Trails)
This canoe camp is designed for younger, less experienced canoers. The first day of Junior Canoe Camp is spent at Birchwood Camp, where campers sharpen their canoe skills, check for correct backcountry gear and practice setting up camp. The next three nights are spent away from camp, camping and canoeing the Nancy Lake Canoe Trails near Willow. Campers gain experience in outdoor living skills, wilderness smarts and survival, and develop deep friendships as they enjoy Alaska’s backcountry. Campers are guided by several experienced canoeists and a wilderness first aid trained staff. Prior canoe experience is not necessary but basic physical fitness is required. In order to stay safe in the back country, Birchwood Camp provides some of the wilderness & camping gear, and other required gear is provided by the camper; click here for the required Gear List and be sure to contact us if you have questions or concerns. This camp has limited space: only 12 camper spaces available per session—register early!
Check-in: 9:00 am Monday, Check-out: 5:00 pm Friday
