Birch Trail’s Family camp is back for summer 2018!! Sign up now to join the Birch Trail Family for your own week in the North Woods at Family Camp! Everyone is invited to Family Camp-you do not have to be a Birch Trail Family!

At Family Camp, each family lives in its own cabin; most provide spectacular lake views. We provide three meals a day in our main lodge, including hot food and a salad bar. There are enough wide-ranging activities throughout the day to keep everyone happy, occupied and HAVING FUN! Family camp is a great way to spend time with your kids, sharing in their adventures and in their special excitements over accomplishments.

All of this means so much to them when they get to do it with you! Our program is flexible enough to allow you the broadest possible range of activities—sunbathing and reading, water-skiing, rock climbing, kayaking, tennis, and our famous trampball! Every evening, there is a special program designed to include all members of the family. These programs include a talent show, campfires, and

Family Camp Information

Your friends and relatives are always welcome to attend Family Camp! You do not have to be a Birch Trail Family to attend. Family Camp is great for many things: family reunions, family vacations, spending time with best friends from home, and has even been used as a way to introduce younger daughters to Birch Trail. So that the parents can enjoy the many activities of Family Camp, families with young children may choose to bring a sitter with them. There is no minimum age for children, but parents should realize that they are responsible for the supervision of their own children. Several of our key staff members will remain at Family Camp to assist and teach activities, run the evening programs, and run supervised kids activities at designated times.

Family Camp starts at dinner on the 11th (6:00 pm), and official family camp programming will begin immediately after dinner. However, you are welcome to arrive any time after 2:00 pm of the 11th to get settled into your cabin. Family Camp will finish after breakfast on Thursday the 16th. Family Camp is free for children under 3 years old. The fee for children ages 3-7 is $350.00, children ages 8-15 is $500.00, and the fee for adults (16+) is $600.00.

Because we must order meals and contract our staff before the fun begins at Family Camp, we cannot pro-rate family camp fees for partial stays. This fee covers the entire Family Camp period and includes all regular activities and meals. Optional items include fees for outside services and equipment rentals, tubing, and river kayaking.
