Sleeping away from family…living in a new “home”… creating a new family of friends: this is what the Birchmont Experience is about.
Our overnight camp gives your children the opportunity to begin the transition from the security of home and family to the independence of creating a new “home away from home.” Camp Birchmont is a community which fosters a caring and engaging environment in a beautiful camp setting. We encourage our campers to actively participate in camp life and broaden their horizons by making new friends and trying new experiences. At Birchmont, the highest values are placed on friendship, mutual respect and fun.
On a practical level, the newly acquired camper skills of taking care of one’s self, organizing personal belongings, sharing cabin chores, and striving for better performance on the fields & courts, empower children in positive and discernible ways. Learning new activities to which a child may have no previous exposure, is as fulfilling for us to teach, as it is for children to discover. In the area of personal development, the overnight camp experience enables children to grow and form strong bonds which last a lifetime.
Cabin life at Birchmont teaches each child to be supportive, and supported in their time at camp. Our campers learn the importance of cooperation, consideration and camaraderie, creating a natural sense of community spirit. All this takes place amidst a summer of fun and adventure on 300 beautiful acres.
How We Accommodate International Campers
For more than three decades Birchmont has had been a home away from home for hundreds International campers. To that end we liaise with each family to assist them in everything from filling out camp forms to making special transportation arrangements specific to the needs of the International camper. Additionally, due to the distance and time differences, we make special arrangements for camper to parent telephone calls. At Birchmont, we do whatever it takes to make a successful and smooth transition for ALL of our campers!
