Camp Birch Trails

Our overnight camp (sometimes called resident camp) is AMAZING! Not only is it in the best of central Wisconsin’s woods surrounding beautiful, private Olivotti Lake, it’s home to all the amazing adventures Girl Scout camp has in to offer. Whether she wants to swim the week away, canoe to the island, hike up and down rolling hills, silently watch a family a deer graze, or scream and laugh as she zip-lines – Overnight camp has it all.

Our overnight camp sessions run from 3-20 days in length for girls in grades K-12. Camp Birch Trails features, tent, yurt, cabin, and hammock living spaces, a rustic dining hall, a new shower house, and so much more!

Check out our Camp Guide for a complete listing of day and overnight camp session for the summer of 2017.
