All of these activities are are facilitated by our award winning staff of caring, fun-loving, experienced and diverse college age counselors.


Our staff is primarily college students, graduates, faculty and former Birch Hill campers. Together we are a diverse group of mature, dignified role models coming from both the United States and abroad. Despite our different backgrounds, as camp counselors and staff there is a common thread that connects us all and brings us together in this magical place that we feel is our home away from home. We love teaching and having fun while maintaining a safe environment that facilitates growth for our campers.

At the beginning of each summer our counselors attend a ten day long, comprehensive training course that speaks our values as an organization. Because our staff are hired based on competency in an activity area, this orientation is focused on addressing overarching concepts around making sure each and every camper feels comfortable and at home here at Birch Hill. We strive to hire staff members who have a cheerful disposition and embody the Birch Hill spirit. We bring you the best people for the job.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: CIT program offered to previous campers that are 16 years old during their session. Our goal for the Counselor in Training (CIT) program is to provide an enjoyable and safe summer experience appropriate for older children. The experience will include leadership training and the opportunity to assume some daily responsibilities at Birch Hill, along with the fun and excitement that accompany the rest of our summer program. It is our hope that the CIT campers will begin to develop some of the skills that will allow them to assume additional leadership positions in the future, perhaps as counselors at Birch Hill once they have had one year of college or life experience after high school. For one activity period each day the CITs will work together in their own group under the supervision of Birch Hill staff members. They will use this time to do team building, to learn how to help with the various camp games, activities, and responsibilities.

By the end of the session CITs choose a counselor at Birch Hill they would like to "shadow" and assist them during their activities, and in the cabin. In addition to the CIT Class the primary responsibility of the CITs will be to assist the directors and the staff of Birch Hill. A typical day may involve helping counselors to run events, aiding in the set up and clean up of camp activities. In addition, we will provide opportunities for Leadership/CIT participants to enjoy the richness of the activities and events that our camp has to offer. All CITs receive community service hours and a college recommendation at your request.

We believe every child deserves the summer camp experience!
