Only at Camp Birchwood for Boys are you able to paddle from one of the Camp docks into what many come from around the Country to experience: the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. In fact, camps from all over the Midwest drive for hours by van just to start their camping adventures at our doorstep, and we do not blame them one bit.

Each camper gets to select the trips they wish to travel with. All trips have two qualified Birchwood counselors and four to seven boys of similar age or experience. Campers also get to choose the length of each adventure ranging from three to nine days.

Between adventures, campers live in cabins of six boys and two counselors. Each day campers sign up for the in-camp activities they want to do. This is done individually (not as a cabin) so that boys have a chance to socialize with campers of all ages outside their cabin.
