Birken's Y Story

Birken arrived at Camp Roger ready to learn, make friends, and have fun. His counselors were immediately impressed by his maturity and his willingness to jump in and help. They also noted that Birken quickly set the tone of caring and respect among his fellow campers. He not only enthusiastically tried new things himself, he also helped encourage others to try new things and celebrated their successes with them. The campers in Birken’s cabin voted him “Values Camper” this year because of his outstanding demonstration of our four core values - Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility.

Camp would not have been the same without Birken. We are so glad that we were able to offer financial assistance for Birken so that he could attend Camp, make new friends, hone his leadership skills, and have a lasting influence on his fellow campers.
