BEST PLACE ON EARTH
Camp Birch Hill is the best place on earth. The land is as beautifully cared for as the campers are. My children cherish this summer camp and I am so grateful they have found a home away from home where they are supported so well.

You're search for the perfect camp is over :)
Five summers ago, we spent 2.5 months looking for the "best" camp to send my brothers, aged 8 and 12 at the time. We emailed about 20 camps trying to get a feel for a camp that offered a plethora of activities, ran for most of the summer, but most of all, would provide a great summer for 2 boys that had never gone away to day camp, nevertheless sleepaway camp. We decided on Camp Birch Hill and hoped for the best. Well, two weeks later when we called the boys, we could not believe how quickly they fell in love with the community. We were so thankful (and relieved) to hear their scratchy voices, sore from cheering on their peers, because that meant they were having fun (to say the least!), and even more thrilled (though slightly disappointed) when they wanted to go back to camp and not talk to us anymore. Words cannot express my gratitude for what Camp Birch Hill has done for Chris and Alex. Though Chris aged out of camp, Alex is going back for his sixth year, and I honestly can't remember a time when he didn't talk about how perfect camp is and how he wishes he were at camp every day. Camp became a haven for both the boys away from the chaos of the school year and for the boys to just be carefree kids. There were so many overwhelming camps to choose from that first year, and I cannot believe how lucky we were by choosing Camp Birch Hill.
