Girls who attend Camp Birchwood must be willing and able to be positive, contributing members of our community. This includes following the camp rules, abiding by cabin guidelines, practicing good manners, respecting others, showing kindness, and handling oneself appropriately at all times (even when immediate counselor/adult supervision is not realistically possible).

It is NOT acceptable in our camp community to “make fun of”, demean, bully or “put down” others. Girls who purposely undermine the authority of camp staff members or participate in exclusive, deci¬sive behaviors that debilitate the growth and comfort of others.

We intend to have an environment that is free from discrimination and void of violence, intimidation, and/or harassment based on race, creed, color, national origin, religious beliefs, or disability. Possession and/or use of tobacco, alcohol, and/or illegal drugs is grounds for dismissal. We do not tolerate emotional or physical abuse or the threat of abuse.

Beginning in March, the Parent Handbook packet is mailed to each camper family with a handbook, packing list, and forms to be filled out prior to camp. It is imperative that parents review the handbook to familiarize themselves with all of our camp rules and operating procedures. If, at any time, parents fundamentally disagree with our practices, we recommend finding a different program that suits your family better.

Any behavior (on behalf of the camper OR the parent) which affects a child’s ability to participate, or seriously disrupts our program, may require dismissal. For the protection of every child’s interest, we reserve the right to dismiss a camper for any reason, without refund In these situations, parents are notified as soon as possible and are responsible for all travel expenses - including the purchase of plane tickets, ticket change fees, Unacompanied Minor form purchases, etc.
