Lake Waterfront & Fire Circle

The fire circle sits on the bank of Psalm Lake at the heart of camp and provides a breath-taking view of the mountains. Often groups will reserve this space in conjunction with waterfront activities on our lake. Birchwood Camp provides trained, certified lifeguards for groups wishing to use our boats, stand up paddle (SUP) boards or swimming area. This is a great activity for birthday parties, company picnics, group building, and for general fun. There is a nominal hourly fee for the lifeguard(s). We require a minimum ratio of one life guard per 30 participants for each activity reserved (i.e. if swimming and boating are taking place at the same time, a separate lifeguard is required for each activity).

The waterfront/ fire circle can be rented individually or can be combined with rental of an indoor space. Please contact us for rates. 

Outdoor Chapel

This quaint chapel sits on our lake front and is one of the most beautiful spots on Camp. A short walk down the shores of Psalm Lake will take you to the chapel, where you will gaze at the Chugach Mountains– beautiful in every season. Please contact us if you are interested in using this chapel for a special service or ceremony.

The chapel has several benches which seat approximately 50 -70 people. The outdoor chapel can be rented individually or can be combined with rental of an indoor space. Please call or email  for rates.
