Introductory 13-Day Program for New Campers Ages 7 – 12
Birch Rock Camp’s Cubs Program is an ideal opportunity for boys to experience a taste of residential camping before committing to the full three, four or seven week camp program. Cubs campers enjoy all of Birch Rock’s traditional activities: swimming, camp craft, sailing, archery, field sports, art, nature, tennis and much more.
Cubs live in small cabins with both new and veteran campers, under the supervision of Birch Rock’s veteran staff. All Cubs fully participate in the routine and rituals of the daily program, and delight in Birch Rock’s cherished traditions. An overnight wilderness trip is one of high points of the Cubs experience. Space is limited.
MWA: A Three-Week Endurance Challenge
“I didn’t really know what to expect – leaving the camp that I had loved each summer for the last five years – to live in tents, climb mountains, raft down rapid rivers, and scale rock faces by the ocean.” – MWA camper
Each summer, eight 14-16 year old boys are selected from the Birch Rock community to take part in the Maine Wilderness Adventure Program, a three-week endurance challenge that puts a boy’s confidence to the test. The program, which runs during the second session of the camp, asks boys to hike difficult parts of the Appalachian Trail, scale cliffs in Acadia National Park, raft down the rapids of the Penobscot River and camp out, living out of backpacks for the entire trip.
Living out of a backpack for three weeks can be a major challenge. But, boys ages 14-16 – especially those who have been at Birch Rock – a wilderness camp in Waterford Maine – for the last few summers and have heard others talk about this program – look forward to this camp rite of passage with great excitement.
