…And there was much rejoicing

We still can’t believe that we’ve arrived on this most sacred of Birch Rock days, the end of season banquet. The last week of camp often features plenty of reflecting, not only on celebrating the achievements of each summer but also looking ahead to a fun and action packed week. In a final half day […]

Activities End with a Bang!

The bittersweet last day of activities began with an upper camp favorite… Laundry Day! Truth be told, the badges were flying out from the field to the waterfront. The field saw Ryan P earning his Senior Volleyball, with Isaac F finishing off his Junior Volleyball. Just down the hill the woodshop was busy with Junior […]

We Don’t Need No Stinking Badges

But hey, that doesn’t mean we don’t like earning them. That’s right the second to last day of activities might as well have been one long badge announcement. We had two whales earned (way to go Eric T and Nathan S)! Hard work from many weeks finally came to fruition, and new experiences tested out […]

“Help the Other Fellow”

Birch Rock is committed to giving boys a rousing summer camp experience that builds self-confidence, skills and responsibility. We focus on enjoyment and stewardship of the natural world, and embrace the simplicity of traditional camping. With our motto, “Help the Other Fellow,” we encourage boys to grow in generosity, integrity and mutual support.

Welcome to Birch Rock Summer Camp for Boys!

A unique and unforgettable summer in the Maine woods!

Since 1926, Birch Rock Summer Camp in Waterford, Maine has offered boys aged 7 to 16 an unparalleled summer of old-fashioned fun and adventure, and a break from their normal home and school routine. We believe that our warm, cooperative community makes Birch Rock an incomparable place, where campers come to master new skills and find pride in their achievements.

A close-knit community of friends and mentors.

Our rustic summer camp and cool as heck wilderness trips whet a boy’s thirst for roughing it in the woods. Birch Rock’s campers and counselors gather from around the world to create tight friendships on our playing fields, on our lakefront, and in our historic Lodge—where campers’ names have filled the walls since 1926. Birch Rock’s directors and staff are true partners in parenting, helping each boy pull through challenges, and return home from camp with a bit more fortitude and exultation.
