A Senior Camper (ages 15-16) typically returns to Birch Rock eager for a summer experience with a capstone of advanced achievement in one or two activities – i.e. swimming the Whale, a mastery in primitive skill development or target sports, or any activity he wishes to achieve with exceptional excellence. Additionally, he and his peers work together in mentoring younger campers who are new to Birch Rock and need a “BRC Buddy” to help adjust to residential camping. Senior Campers are learning to lead and are the ultimate role-models of the camp. They provide community service inside and outside of the camp, lead by example in terms of daily chores – i.e. inspection, table set-up, servicing at meal time, and all camp activity events.
