Birch Trail Camp for Girls is a traditional summer camp for girls. We offer a large variety of land and water sports, climbing, arts and crafts, dance, horseback riding and much more (you name it-we teach it)! Located on the east shore of Lake Pokegama in beautiful northwestern Wisconsin, Birch Trail also has one of the country's premier wilderness tripping programs. A camper at Birch Trail will spend her summers under lush, tall trees, and see many animals and birds, including our resident bald eagles! Birch Trail is a special place in a magnificent setting, where girls cultivate friendships and memories to last a lifetime.
