As brother-sister camps, they are located across the lake from each other, with separate facilities and activities, but under the same ownership and long-standing mission to provide a high quality camping and recreational experience by enhancing the physical, social, mental, and spiritual well-being of each individual.


Birchwood Wilderness Camp

For more than 50 year Birchwood Wilderness has used wilderness experiences to inspire self discovery, growth, and a shared sense of purpose among campers using the four foundations of community, life skills, role models, and respect for wilderness.


Camp Birchwood

For over 80 years nestled in the beautiful Northwoods of Minnesota, Camp Birchwood has served as the ideal spot for girls to sink into nature and venture into their own self. With over 25 activities to choose from, campers are able to learn a variety of skills. Most importantly they become part of a loving community that supports each other long after summer is over. Camp Birchwood's mission is to provide an opportunity for girls to gain self-confidence and build resilience through hands-on experiential learning.  Campers gain strength, independence, and self-worth.
