Many of the items needed for a summer at BRC, except for the uniform shirts, may come from your own wardrobe at home. MAINE CAMP OUTFITTERS (MCO) is Birch Rock’s official camp supplier of apparel and camp related gear.
Our daily dress code is casual and practical. No cut-off shorts, torn jeans or pierced earrings/rings or body jewelry are permitted. We strongly recommend waterproof hiking boots and rain wear for trips, day adventures and rainy days.
A packing list is enclosed for your review by Maine Camp Outfitters and Birch Rock Camp. Although there are many hot, sunny days in the summer, there are also cool, windy nights. We strongly recommend that each camper comes to BRC with enough warm clothes to be comfortable for the wonderful temperate climate of the Maine woods.
Birch Rock does have a uniform required (BRC T-shirt & khaki shorts) on Saturdays & Sundays, day trips outside of camp and special occasions at camp. A BRC T-shirt is mandatory at dinner each night and off-campus during the summer. We believe dressing for our camp community family-style dinner provides a refreshed and collegial respite from the action-packed events of the day.
Required: 7 BRC T-shirts (3 Maroon / 4 Ash Gray) and 2 pair of Khaki shorts
The BRC maroon or ash (optional) T-shirts with the camp logo must be purchased from Maine Camp Outfitters www.maine-camps.com Although we do not specify or supply a specific carrier for khaki shorts, we like L.L. Bean’s www.llbean.com in Freeport, Maine. BRC also recommends that each camper bring his own personal footlocker or trunk to camp for storage of his clothing.
